Justin, an adorable senior, medium sized, scruffy dog gets pet by his loving owner.


Every dog loves to go on a walk, but for Justin, his next walk revealed that something was wrong… Twelve-year-old Justin exhibited extreme pain while walking, so his family immediately took him to the veterinarian. Unfortunately, the vets deemed Justin’s diagnosis to be Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD) making him progressively weaker and unable to walk. Justin needed an emergency surgery to save him from the excruciating pain he was experiencing.

As members of the military, Justin’s family faced an expensive veterinary bill and the possibility of euthanizing their family member. Fortunately, Justin’s veterinarian at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital referred his family to FACE and with the help of The Grey Muzzle Organization, Justin received the surgery he needed to live a healthy, pain-free life!
