For The Love Of Mia-We are trying to raise money to save our dog's life. Mia is a little 5 month old Yorkshire Terrier puppy. Mia has been diagnosed with AAI Atlantoaxial (luxation) and is in desperate need of spinal surgery to help stabilize the ligaments in her neck which has made it so she can no longer walk. Without the surgery she will become permanently paralyzed and could die due to spinal cord related complications. Mia's journey has been a hard one, and she has far to go, but Mia has held on strong, because she wants so very much to live and play like a normal little dog.It is said that it takes a village to raise a child. Well, in this case, it is taking many loving hands to raise a tiny puppy with an incredible will to live. I am hoping their are others out there with hearts as soft as mine. If everyone who reads this can donate whatever they can afford - even $5, $10, $25 -- Little Mia can have the life she is fighting so hard to keep. It will truly take a village to save her. Please be part of it!! I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read her story. Mia thanks you too. I am hopeful people will come to love Mia as much as we do, and I pray for your help! PLEASE HELP HER!

What is AAI (Atlanto-Axial Instability) Dogs with AAI have very small or weak ligament that attach this two important bone. In most case, dogs with AAI also born without dens or born with very small dens that won't allow strong ligament. Dents is a hole in the atlas or the place for the ligament.This condition may lead into cervical spinal cord injury. And the symptoms are neck pain, lethargy, staggering gait (especially when walking), respiratory problem that may lead to death, paralysis etc.
With surgery this is 100% fixable and curable and a dog can live a long productive, happy life.
