Last week while we were wrestling with fires, Duke was wrestling with a battle of his own. On December 4th the Santa Ana winds were so strong it blew open a Family's back yard gate where Duke and his best friend Kallie got out and ran through the streets. Their Family, Brenda Blades and her husband went looking for their dogs. They found Kallie, she had been hit by a car and passed away. They searched for Duke up and down but couldn't seem to find him.
Just one week later, Duke came limping back onto their porch with a broken hip, broken ankle and foot bone, and several pelvis fractures. They rushed him to Loma Linda Animal Hospital and wee happy to hear he had no internal injuries or bleeding. Now Duke awaits $1600 surgery, which Brenda has been able to raise about $600 of after the $300 vet visit. Duke's surgery is in TWO WEEKS and we want to help this big, lovable, two year old, walk again.
Brenda and her husband got Duke as a puppy after their first baby girl Kenzie. They've grown up together and have been inseparable, and now, 2 year old Kylee is asking where is her puppy Duke?
The Blades Family have had a very rough financial year. Her husbands company downsized, their house went into foreclosure, and they fell behind on bills. They are now doing everything they can to get back on their feet and now tragedy struck again with Duke. They love their puppy dearly and can't handle loosing another member of their family.
Please help Duke walk and play again with his loving family!
