We need your help! A close friend of ours is going through a very tough time in Raleigh. Her dog, Boone, (a South African Boerboel who happens to be Have A Night Raleigh's mascot) is in desperate need of a double hip replacement. In the past, you may have seen Boone out and about at Raleigh bars (he loves Boxcar as evidenced by the feature photo), restaurants, and festivals throughout the city. With his size, he's definitely hard to miss! But in the past couple of weeks, Boone has gone from super active to unable to walk on his own.
From the GoFundMe page:
"Unfortunately, Boone now suffers from hip dysplasia that has taken his ability to use his back legs. Within two weeks he went from galloping around to needing to be carried everywhere, around the house, outside, and so on. He cannot walk without falling or dragging his legs. Our goal would be to get him the double hip replacement, so we could relieve his pain and continue to care for him. The veterinarian's estimate is that the surgery would cost $12,500. Please help us bring Boone back."
Check out a few of our favorite photos of this gentle giant below!
