Duke was all set to go to his new forever home in a few days. Today, he got up in that morning, romped in the yard, ate breakfast, played in the pool, had a great time with his buddy Storm, then laid down to take a nap and didn’t wake up. Devastated is an understatement.


Buddy came to DDBR unable to walk. He had major hind end weakness and it was discovered he was likely hit by a car as he had severe spinal degeneration. On top of that, xrays showed he had severe elbow and shoulder dysplasia as well. There truly was nothing that could be done, we even tried a wheel chair for him, but his front would not support him.
