Rescued Neapolitan Mastiff Mix Needs Our Help

Please help this poor girl:

Bubbles is a beautiful 2-year-old Neapolitan mastiff mix. She was picked up as a stray by a good Samaritan who, while on the way to work, saw Bubbles.

Bubbles was taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) in Baltimore, MD. BARCS transferred Bubbles to Noah’s Ark care (a 501 C3 not-for-profit organization that supplies emergency medical, surgical and rehabilitation to abused animals).

Bubbles has MLO (Multilobular  Osteochondrosarcoma),which is  a tumor that forms on the bone. Her best chance is to remove the tumor and then followup with chemotherapy and radiation.

Unfortunately, the tumor has spread to her lungs. However, it’s a slow-growing tumor. and currently, she is not in danger of losing her life. The surgery will last practically the whole day and there many risks involved. The biggest problem is going to be blood loss.  Bubbles will be needing several blood transfusions to survive the procedure. As there is so much publicity surrounding this sweet girl, Noah’s Ark chose to keep the surgeon and surgical location private.

Bubbles is a young dog and should have a normal life ahead of her. Please donate to her cause. Should you want to read more about her, here are some links for your perusal:
