Baxter is a 7 year old Boxer. We got him through Midwest Boxer Rescue, and we've had him since he was a year old.
Last year we noticed Baxter was having some trouble with his back left leg. It bows inwards and/or twists when he walks and its instability causes him to slip and fall frequently. Our vet said he needs surgery, which we're trying to get his weight down for, but we can't do any of that unless he has a leg brace so he can go for walks.
Right now, he can go down to the end of the block and back, but anything else is too much for his leg. If he keeps falling and having to completely rely on his back left leg, he's going to end up compromising that good leg and he would most likely end up needing a wheelchair. Baxter is the sweetest boy and we would be so grateful for any donation to help him out. Thank you.
