BeBe needs Your HELP!

This beautiful girl is BeBe. She's much too sick to write to you herself, so one of the LBR volunteers is helping her. When she get's better, she'll tell you all about herself.

As of right now, she is fighting for her life at one of our wonderful LBR vets. Her owner's took her to an ER clinic last night to have her euthanized because she has a prolapsed uterus. She has been sick for 10 DAYS! That's not a pretty sight, so we won't share those pictures with you, but let's just say it is life-threatening and very painful. And she's only 17 months old. Just a baby.

The ER clinic couldn't bear to euthanize her. They said that when they looked at her face, it was as if she was saying "Please don't kill me!". They contacted LBR for help. Our fearless leader, Sharon Sleighter took one look at her picture and told them to stabilize her and we would do what we can to help.

Within 30 minutes, we had a foster home lined up and transport from the ER clinic to our regular vet arranged.

BeBe has a long way to go and it's still unclear as to whether or not we will be able to save her life or not. She is scheduled for surgery at 10AM in the morning at a vet that specializes in very complicated surgeries. Her ER bill alone was $809. And that's just a drop in the bucket of what it will take to save her.

But that's what Legacy Boxer Rescue does best - Save The Boxers!
