Tyler Jeffries Service Dog Campaign

Army Specialist, Tyler Jeffries (ret.) lost both of his legs after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan. His lifeline was his service dog, Apollo, a beautiful red doberman that was trained by animal expert Brandon McMillan, who is the  host of the popular CBS show called, "Lucky Dog." Sadly, two weeks ago, Apollo, passed away from a heart condition unexpectedly. This left a hole in Tyler's heart and in his ability to be secure and independent. Brandon has generously agreed to train a new dog for Tyler. Tyler is responsible for paying for his new best friend and all the expenses involved in the six-month training. We are trying to raise the funds needed to purchase a new dog, and then Brandon will be training the dog to help Tyler with his mobility, security and doing the tasks that his beloved Apollo did so well. We thank you for your contribution and Tyler and his family are deeply grateful for your generosity.
