I know that their are some big dog lovers on this board, and I thought it might do some good to post this here. My wife and I are involved with the MoKan boxer rescue, and we recently heard this awful news...

"MoKan Boxer rescue and our special broken puppy boy really need your help. Perhaps you have heard about the Broken Overland Park Boxer Puppy on the radio?

This little puppy boy was hit by a hit and run driver on 10/17/06.and left to die by the side of the road. A kind samaritan found him lying there & notified the Overland Park KS Animal Control. She asked the shelter what would happen to him & was told that he would be put on a 3-day stray hold & if he was not claimed by his owners, he would be put to sleep as his injuries were so severe. Not wanting that to happen, this kind woman called the radio station. We found out about this poor baby after 2 radio stations aired his story, looking for help and we agreed to take him.

After being evaluated by a veterinary orthopedic surgeon, we learned that our poor puppy had suffered
2 badly broken back legs and a crushed pelvis.
Amazingly, he didn't suffer any internal injuries.
During a lengthy surgery last Friday, the surgeon plated a tibia (big bone lower leg), a femur(big bone upper leg, other side) and has also pinned together his pelvis which was crushed on one side(ilium, ishium). He had to "pop" it back out but it went easily(all things considered)....and put in some pins. He was very pleased with the surgery and how it went and says puppy should get around just fine after recuperation.

The bill for the surgery is $5000 + and that doesn't include charges for the week to ten days of 24 hour care at the emergency clinic.

The radio stations were just sure that they could raise all we needed in a day, but the total they've raised plus the donations we've managed to secure on our own only amounts to about $1,600....leaving us seriously short of what we'll need.

Since we are a small, non-profit rescue group, we really need donations to help pay for his care. He is such a sweet brave little guy, not more than six months old. I saw him yesterday and even with his cast, all his stitches , and his terrible "road rash", his boxer spirit was shining through. His little stub never stopped wiggling as I gently petted him. His pictures are on our website (He's in the Emergency Room Section)Take one look at that sweet baby's face and you'll understand why we had to help him.

If you can't donate we certainly understand, but could you please pass this on to others who might be able to help us? If it's allowed, we'd appreciate it if folks would post this on a regular or electronic bulletin board at work , or anywhere else they think that people who might help would see it.

Donations may be made by going to our website http://www.midwestboxerrescues.com and using the donate buttons which will go through Paypal or by mailing a check or money order to:

That's typically not the route that the Rescue organizations go. It would be a huge amount for one person to pay, but the MoKan Boxer Rescue can save the life of the dog, then give it a new home when it's healthy. To be honest, I wouldn't have expected much else from you anyway, Saul...like I said, I've been reading the board for quite a few years.

Well lets see, a box of 50 .22 shells goes for Ďround $7, + or - dependín on brand and type (FMJ, JHP, etcÖ), so thatíd make anything over Ďbout $.14 a waste of resources.
Seriously though, Iím as much a dog lover as anyone and to me $5K is way too damn much. Put the poor thing down and donít make it suffer any more for someone elseís pity.

There are plenty of good causes out there, inluding underprivilaged children. I certainly wouldn't post this with the intention of taking money away from other causes. For some people, they prefer to give to charities that help animals. I lost my brother to Leukemia when he was 5, and most of the money I donate goes to help children with in similar situations...but it's certainly not the only good cause out there. That's all I'm saying.

Where the **** do you people get off asking for people to fork over 5 grand for a ****ing dog that need shot in the head and thrown in a dumpster anyway. I'm so sick and tired of seeing dogs scattered up and down the highway because people don't look after them. If you're gonna have a ****ing dog then keep it penned up away from ****ing automobiles and here you are spending $5000 to heal up a dog so the next person can take him straight to the nearest highway for road kill. Jesus Christ you people are ****ing stupid. And to top it all off you want everyone else to pay for it. Damn this shit pisses me off. Your mother should have had a friggin abortion.

I completely hear what you're saying. The dog had no severe internal injuries besides the many broken bones. It's not suffering now, and is on the road to recovery. He should now be able to live a full life, and will no doubt make some family very happy. I'm in total agreeance about not making a dog suffer, but the Boxer Rescue and the vets felt that the dog wasn't suffering, and they did what they thought was right. Please understand that I'm not asking anyone here to donate a dime. I just wanted to pass along the information. The people that read it and feel compelled will help. Others won't. Either way, I just wanted to help get the story out there.

I don't want to be mean, or unkind or whatever....but there are a hell of alot of dogs in need of homes too.

I personally think its cruel to keep an animal alive and let it suffer those injuries, and a waste of resources to spend $6-7k on a dog that may not live or be "right" again anyway.

How many weeks of food for the entire shelter would that single surgery's expense purchased?

I know my perspective is often viewed as harsh, but I learned at a young age on the farm that this is part of life. Sometimes, the hard thing to do, is the right thing to do for the animal.

This is one of those decisions that would kill me to have to make. $5000 is alot of money and would go along way in helping hundreds of other animals.

On the other hand, if the Boxer is going to heal fine and suffered no injuries other than broken bones, I don't think I would put him down. Plus he's still a puppy.

Personally? I spent about $1300 to have my dog's knee fixed when he was younger. I was prepared to double that amount to have the other need fixed had he not grown out of the problem in that one. Since nothing else was wrong with him, I felt it was the right decision at the time.

Wow, buddy...You've got some real issues, and I wish you luck with working those out, honestly.

Look, like I said, I'm not asking for anyone to donate anything. I personally have nothing to gain from this. I know there are opinions on completely opposite sides of the spectrum on issues like this, obviously, and I don't pass judgement one way or the other. Ultimately, there are people that look for things like this to donate to...they just don't always hear about them.

Secondly, the MoKan Boxer rescue is only asking those that feel strongly about this for help. No one is expecting you to do a thing if you don't want to. Your money would obviously be better spent with a psych evaluation and/or anger management classes. You stay classy, Hog Farmer...

For those who think the dog has suffered and should have been put down.....

My parents, years ago had a 8 month old siberian huskey that was struck by a car. She had much the same injuries as this dog. The Vet professors at WSU performed the surgery, much like what was done with this dog. She went through about 3 months of rehab. Most of this time was spent trying to keep her from running all over the place.

To make a long story short, she lived a nice long 14 years, suffered no ill effects from the injuries and was one of the fastest and quickest turning huskies I have ever been around.

She had a great life and it was worth every dollar to get her fixed.

Thanks Dartgod, and to those who have voiced their opinion, either way. I've got to be honest. I am a huge dog fan, and I would have a tough decision to make with a $5000 vet bill as well. Ultimately, I consider my dogs my family and would do what it takes, but it wouldn't be an easy decision. The fact is, this dog has had the surgeries, and he will be fine. They aren't asking one person to give $5000, but they know that people will come together to help when the message is received by the right people. The MoKan Boxer rescue is only hoping to reach the people that wouldn't have heard about this otherwise.

True. I wish I had jack to throw around for injured dogs but I don't. If you can't or won't, shut up. This thread is no place to advertise that opinion.

We've had medical problems with both of ours ranging from parvo right when we got our boy, Bosley, to cancer, and now our girl, Layla, just tore her 2nd ACL after fulling healing on the 1st. Each of these required expensive surgeries, but they are family, and we couldn't convince ourselves to do anything but get them healthy again.

You have a very sensitive nose if you can smell a scam from a mile away when it involves a well established 501c3 non-profit organization that helps abused dogs. If you'd like, check out more info on MoKan Boxer Rescue @ www.midwestboxerrescues.com . Or talk to someone who has personally adopted a dog from them by talking to Bill Lumberg on this board. I don't know what makes you think these donations are coming to me, but it's a good conspiracy theory nonetheless. The people that give their time to volunteer for the MoKan Boxer Rescue do it strictly for their love of animals and the Boxer breed. Come to one of the monthly MoKan Boxer Adoption days at Petco @ 11620 West 95th Street (across from Oak Park mall) someday and see for yourself. I'll be there volunteering, and I'll be happy to show you that no one is trying to "fool you".

La Russa has a resue and training place in Walnut Creek with 100% placement. One of the few organizations claiming to help animals that actually does. http://www.arf.net/

Okay, I give in Mr. Imumama. If you will just furnish me with your account number I will have the money wired to your bank. After all I do this all the time for those poor people in Nigeria.

Wow Hogfarmer...I guess I gave you credit for being able to read a bit too soon. Try looking up a few posts and if your mind can put together the syllables you'll see that I already beat you to the Nigerian email scam connection. Keep up the good work. This board would be lost without you.

I couldn't tell you...I have nothing to do with the collection of the funds. My intent was only to help get the word out to those that care. It just so happens that you opened your mouth and got me fired up. It's funny how classless so many of your colleagues here think you are. Your opinion and general attitude toward life make me glad that I'm not such a sad, classless individual. It's tough to act that angry all the time, I'm sure.

no dog is worth a 5k repair job.

Agreed, unless the dog was Mayday or something. :)

I completely see your point. However, the reality is that not everyone in the world is a farmer, and there are a lot of people that do think a dog is worth a 5k repair job. I was only hoping that this would reach a few of the people that feel that way. Obviously, on a medium such as this, it's going to reach classless angry people like hogfarmer as well...you have to take the good with the bad.

Being a farm guy doesn't make you classless. It's cool what you're doing for the dog, many just question if the 5k could have done a lot more than save this one dog even if you wanted to be breed specific.

Big Daddy...it's not the fact that he's a farmer that makes him classless...see his quote below for clarification on his lack of class.

Where the **** do you people get off asking for people to fork over 5 grand for a ****ing dog that need shot in the head and thrown in a dumpster anyway. I'm so sick and tired of seeing dogs scattered up and down the highway because people don't look after them. If you're gonna have a ****ing dog then keep it penned up away from ****ing automobiles and here you are spending $5000 to heal up a dog so the next person can take him straight to the nearest highway for road kill. Jesus Christ you people are ****ing stupid. And to top it all off you want everyone else to pay for it. Damn this shit pisses me off. Your mother should have had a friggin abortion.

And like I said, I knew that there would be people that didn't agree with what MoKan did to save the boxer's life...but I was also betting that there would be some others that did care. And I was right on both accounts.

Also, the MoKan Boxer Rescue does not turn away any boxer in need of help. If you check out their site, they help tons of dogs. They typically don't have to raise money like this, but the dog's injuries required more desperate measures. They also work closely with other rescue groups to make sure other breeds are helped when necessary. So, ultimately, they will help any dog. The money it costs to help this dog will not take their efforts away from others. Hope that helps.
