Donations Requested! Maddie in OK

I am cute and petite Maddie. I am 5-years-old and I came from a breeding operation. I am very small at 11 pounds and when I went to the vet, I lost 21 teeth, but I still eat well and keep my tongue in my mouth. I also had very bad ear infections and ruptured ear drums. I got spayed and am feeling a lot better now that I have taken some antibiotics.

I am a very special girl and love my humans. I want to be by them all the time and curl up quietly and follow you around most of the time.

The one problem I have is that I can’t jump up or down to be by you without some help. I have two very bad knees and my legs are crooked and don’t work properly because of that. This is a hereditary condition, so how sad was it that they were using me for breeding?  

Consults with the veterinarians have said that it would take around $2000 total to get both of my knees done, plus rescue has already spent around $1000 getting all my other vet work completed. I would really appreciate if you could help me by donating to Cavalier Rescue USA to help get my knees fixed.

I get along well with other Cavaliers and people. I really loved a little girl that came to visit today and would be so happy to be able to run with good knees! I like to play and am such a sweet girl.
