Let's Help Out This Veteran Service Dog

This story was featured in Military Times, and has reached national media attention. Let's help out this honorable service dog by ensuring that he gets the treatment and care that he deserves after a career saving the lives of American Soldiers.

Mex, a veteran service dog, has completed deployments to Afghanistan. Due to his medical conditions, he was discharged from the military. During his service, he was given the United States Military Working Dog Service Award and worked alongside four units, to include the 101st Airborne.

The 5-year-old German shepherd has severe hip dysplasia and canine degenerative myelopathy, a disease that eventually leads to complete paralysis.

Mex is in the early stages of the disease and still has a lot of life left in him. But the Ross family is struggling to pay the for the treatments and equipment needed to improve his quality of life.

The owners of Mex have made strides to try and give him the care that he needs, but the costs are racking up. They have set up a fund, and are requesting the assistance from us.

You have all done such great things on behalf of our service members and veterans, and I want to think you for that. I appreciate all you have done from the bottom of my heart, and I hope that you are willing to help out this amazing service dog in need.
