DeeDee belongs to a US forces Veteran, please read on the quoted text from her fundraising page.
"Please help Our DeeDee. DD has had a rough start to life she was born on the streets of In Walton County Florida. She lived in a shelter until she was transported to Maine by the Road trip Home. We adopted her from Greater Androscoggin Humane society. She was 8 weeks old. She is now 8 months old and we have found out that she will need orthopedic surgery to correct angular deformity in her leg. My husband is a 100% service connected disabled veteran she helps my husband a lot. Our only income is my husband’s disability pension so money is tight. The vet bills from this surgery will be approximately 2,000 total. I have looked for help everywhere and I have heard everything from dump her back at the shelter to just cut the leg off. DD is a sweet dog she is in a lot of pain when she walks, and has been very sad not being able to play with her adopted brother. With all that she does for our family she deserves to have as normal and pain free life as possible. Please help me help our DeeDee even the smallest amount helps. Thank you very much for taking the time to read about our DeeDee, "
