Help Dutchie

Yesterday (November 22, 2014) while at work my sister Brittany  got a call saying her dog Dutchess had been bumped by her other two dogs and had fallen off the stairs to her apartment. she was reassured the dog was fine and waited until her shift was over to go home. When she got home Dutchess was not well at all. Brittany carried her to the car and brought her to the vet where they handed her a hefty bill and then sent her to Tufts Veterinary Hospital. At Tufts they immediately confirmed multiple fractures in one of her legs that would require surgery.  Two long hours went by as Brittany sobbed in the waiting area only to find out Dutchess had also ruptured her spleen. As any of you can imagine the cost of this surgery is insanely expensive and with the cost of everyday life saving Dutchie is almost out of reach. Brittany has tried everything except selling her soul to save this dog that means the world to her. Without Brittany's knowledge I set this gofundme with a goal of $6000.00  but Brittany would be extremely grateful for any amount of a donation towards Dutchess' recovery. 
Thank you.
