Family Spends $13,000 on Cosmetic Surgery for their Dog
Posted March 6th, 2012 @ 6:59am

An English couple dropped more than $13,000 on a tummy tuck, facelift and other surgeries for their dog, Junior, over the past two years

Now, before you judge...they had saved him from blindness..

The 5-year-old pooch suffers from a rare disease that causes excess skin to develop on the body, leaving Junior nearly immobile and unable to see because skin flaps had grown over his eyes.

However...the owners did admit that some of the surgeries were strictly cosmetic, rather than medically significant.

"It's taken years off him and he does look like a young man again," Now he's more mobile and he's got a new lease on life."

They did have pet insurance so it didn't cost as much.
