PLEASE HELP US HELP COPPER
UPDATE: 2-24-15 Copper is doing wonderfully, thank you! The hardest part of his recovery is getting him to rest! He wants to run and play tug and fetch all the time! lol He is going in on Monday to have his stitches removed. The incision site is healing well with no signs of infection, so that's great! He is having problems with very dry, itchy skin, especially where they had to shave him. The vet did take a skin scraping as well as a stool sample to check for parasites, thankfully they both came back negative. He was prescribed some medication for his dry skin and that seems to be helping. I'm looking forward to this spring when he can get out and run and play fetch without any pain!! He jumped up on Phoenix's bed to sleep by him the same night he came home after having surgery! I had made a bed for him on the floor and Phoenix tucked him in with a pillow and blanket, but Copper wasn't having any of it. After Phoenix went to bed, Copper hopped over to his bed, jumped up, and cuddled with Phoenix and stayed there all night. We can't thank The Mosby Foundation enough for all you have done for Copper and our family!! Thank you!
UPDATE: 01-14-15 Copper is home now from his surgery. The surgery went well. He's resting now. Thank you again for all of your kindness, generosity, and help!!!! I will keep you updated on his recovery. Thank you!!!! Sincerely, Rachel & family

This incredible family has had many years of struggles and challenges. Without support from their father, their Mom is now raising 4 children by herself. She is also recovering from her own battle with thyroid cancer. The one constant has been their loving therapy dog, a German Short-Haired Pointer named Copper, who is struggling with his own very painful challenge. He is suffering from Osteochondritis Dissecans or OCD. OCD is an abnormal development of the cartilage on the end of a bone in the joint. The diseased cartilage separates from the underlying bone and as you can imagine is extremely painful. Having lost their home to foreclosure, plus all of Rachel’s hospital expenses, they simply can not afford sweet Copper’s surgery. They have raised $750 by selling what few things they have left, but are still in need of raising $1,350. Please help us help this courageous family keep their lovable pup healthy, happy and in their home where he belongs.
*The term osteochondrosis is an abnormal development of the cartilage on the end of a bone in the joint. Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD or OD) is an inflammatory condition that occurs when the diseased cartilage separates from the underlying bone. It most commonly affects the shoulder joint but the elbow, hip, or knee (stifle) may also be involved.

Cali is doing good :) she is still in some pain, but I have noticed her using her leg a little more than she has for the past 6 months, so I am sure once we go for her follow up to get sutures out and get exercises she will be back to normal in no time. Thanks for helping us so much!!!! We could not have done it without the Mosby foundation. I am enclosing a picture taken last Friday when she came home. Thank You! — Ashleigh & Cali, Staunton, VA
Thank you from Jack and our family for your help! — Jack Ofiara, Amsterdam, NY
Hello Mosby! Just dropping by to say hi and let you know that Zoe is doing great! It's been 4 weeks since surgery... Her doc is great and gives her a new color cast every time! Saw him today and he thinks she will be in cast for 4 more weeks, then if X-rays look good she'll wear a soft wrap for 2 weeks, then remove the plate and wear a hard cast for 4 weeks and then she'll be done! It's been a long journey, but she's been stylish all the way! Thank you again!! — Stefanie San Angelo, TX
We are so thankful and overwhelmed by The Mosby Foundation! The gift of life from total strangers is just breathtaking and restores one’s faith in humanity as a whole. He isn’t just a dog, and you believe in him, and us. We are clearly on the right track. I said it before, THANK YOU ISN’T ENOUGH!! — Kristy & Aspen, Maumelle, AR — Note from Mosby.........Aspen is going in for a total hip replacement on Thursday 1-22-15. Please wish him well!
Hi Mosby! I wanted to say thank you again for helping me pay for Dakotas surgery! She is doing pretty good since I picked her up. I attached a couple pictures of her! Thank you again! — Samantha, Manhattan, KS
When Brick was very young, I thought he was strangely lazy; he hardly walk, didn't jump around. By the time he was about 7 months, it was clear something was wrong. At ten months old Brick was in constant pain, walked with small careful steps, and whimpered all the time. After consulting two Vets, x-rays, we were referred to a specialist who said it would be best for him to be put down soon if we didn't get one of his hips repaired. We gathered all our resources but came up short on the down payment. This is where Mosby came in; thankfully you donated the remaining due and the rest is history! Brick is now a very active, bouncy, happy boy; He plays the way he should have as a pup. Thank you.
Just wanted to let you guys know Chloe had her surgery and she is doing excellent! The vet removed three rather large stones a little smaller than a marshmallow and like two very tiny ones. I have attached photos of her and the stones. I would again like to thank the organization for donating the funds towards her surgery. Words cannot express how grateful we truly are. It blew my mind that total strangers would help me out. You guys have restored my dwindling faith in the generosity of mankind. I will forever be grateful.
With a heartfelt thank you,
Rhonda and Chloe
