I'm raising money so that my dog, Duke, can have the surgery needed to repair his broken leg. He's a wonderful dog with a lot of life left!!

My name is Brandy Soto and My father, Ruben, passed away Dec 23rd 2009. I inherited his German Shepard, Duke. He is a member of our family and went EVERYWHERE with my Dad and still goes to most family functions. He is more than just a "pet" to us. To my young daughters, who were devastated by the loss of their "PapaBear", myself and my family, Duke is walking reminder of my father and one of the only things we have left to remember him by.
On Thursday Oct 7th, Duke was attacked by another dog or animal and his leg was broken. Dr. Matt Feller at Alvarado Veterinary Clinic said it is a difficult break to repair and will require a $1200 surgery that neither myself or my family can afford. I am a single mom paying my way through college and my family doesn't have a lot of money.
Duke is currently in a splint, on antibiotics and pain medication until we can come up with the money for his surgery. I can tell he is in a lot of pain and we don't have much time. The hardest decision we as a family will have to make is to have him put to sleep if we can't collect the money, and to keep him from suffering.
If there is anyway you can help save a member of our family PLEASE HELP. All funds will go to cover Duke's surgery and resulting medical bills. We will be forever grateful to have Duke continue to be with us and bring back happy memories of my father.

God Bless
-Brandy Soto
