Shorty is a gorgeous Black Lab mix girl born in March, 2014. She arrived at MaxFund with a physique that is startling…shocking, really. Her rear half is twisted in a most improbable way, which makes standing and walking quite a challenge. But with your support for her Petcaring fundraiserwe know Shorty's body can be helped to keep up with her unstoppable personality! Her fundraiser ends soon, and we are SO close to her goal of raising $10,000 for her therapy. With your help, we can meet or beat that goal!
Shorty was relinquished to MaxFund on August 29, 2014.  As for her physical condition, we don't know what happened, when it happened, or how it happened: “She has always been like this,” is what we were told. 
Shorty’s x-rays are shocking. One vet we consulted described what she saw as “hemivertebrae (deformed spinal bones) on steroids with nuclear waste and zombie venom.”  There’s shock that she’s even alive, much less thriving. You hear moans, groans, and just disbelief in general. 
So can Shorty be “fixed”? Well, Shorty will be the first to point out she’s not “broken”! What she needs is your help to be the very best Shorty she can be. Professional physical therapy will allow her to build her strength, balance, and endurance. We have started working with the fine folks at CRCG Canine Rehabilitation Group, and have consulted with the professionals at Ortho Pets as well as CSU’s therapy group.
All this is very expensive, of course. But with your help, Shorty can get the therapy she needs. We've set up a fundraiser on with a goal of $10,000. This amount will allow her to get several months of intensive physical therapy at CRCG to strengthen her muscles and improve her mobility and balance. We plan to train volunteers to assist her with additional exercises, too.
So please help if you can; please click here for more information, photos and videos, and to donate! Checks are also welcome, and may be sent to: MaxFund, 720 W. 10th Ave., Denver, CO 80204, attn.: Help Shorty.
On behalf of Shorty, THANK YOU for your help. Shorty exemplifies MaxFund's mission, a mission we can't fulfill without your support.
