Ranger needs your help, or he will lose the function of his arms within a year.

Ranger, who is 5 Months old, is a Golden Retriever with a huge personality! He is adventurous and extremely loving. He loves to chase the lawn mower around the front yard and beach days on Sundays. Ranger always has his tail wagging and will cry with excitement when ever someone comes to see him.

He adores his big sister, Suby, who is a 4 year old Golden Retriever. Suby and Ranger are best friends and love sneaking off to the orchard to play together.

A couple of months ago, Suby and Ranger went out for a walk to the beach. He watched his big sister run into the waves and got a little too excited. He tried to take a short cut and fell down a 4 metre cliff.

Ranger has now damaged his front arms. He can only walk with a limp. When he sits his arms shake and his elbows are growing out to the sides. His cartalige is gone and his arms cause him a lot of pain.

If Ranger does not get the surgery he needs, he will not be able to walk within the year. Our insurance will not cover us for his operation.

His arms will need to be broken at the elbow joint and there will be a long recovery period.

Putting our little man down is not an option for us, and we need help to cover the

$14, 000 surgery.

We need all the support and help we can get to keep our little man walking. Please help us keep our little Family,

Connor and Maysie
