Jax & Bama need forever. Help Jax.

The story of Jax and Bama. A Collie and a Doberman.
Soulmates. Neighbors. Best of friends.  A love that’s beyond words over the last two years.  It's a love that needs to continue for many more years - until they are old and gray. Not one that ends today at 3 years old.

Over the last two weeks, Jax was not himself. His demeanor changed. He became weak. He stopped eating. He lost weight. He went into liver failure.

Over that time, the doctors did everything they could to identify the cause however Jax's health continued to decline.

He spent his days at the Vet getting fluids and the treatment he needed and the nights at home with his mom with frequent love and visits from his girl, Bama.

Unfortunately, Jax was brought to a 24 Hour Hospital a few days ago for a hail mary, for there to be a sign of hope and for serious medical treatment as his organs and body were shutting down. 

When Jax became too weak for biopsy surgery, for the specialists to identify the cause of the liver failure, Bama went to say her goodbyes to her friend. 

That was two days ago.

When Bama went to say goodbye, Jax, to everyone's surprise, was fighting and showing signs of hope.

Jax spent everyday in the hospital, in the ICU fighting for his life. 

And we'd like to all think it's all for true love of his mom and for Bama.

Jax received a blood transfusion early Saturday morning but despite the best efforts, took his last breathe in his mother’s arms. 

Please help donate to true love. To believing in the friendship and the bond of Jax and Bama. To believing in Jax's recovery and his story.

The medical treatment Jax received was exrraordinary but it is under the supervision of specialists which is expensive especially at a daily rate. By creating this page, the intent is to share a beautiful story, while also giving us all something else to believe in while helping Jax recieve the medical care he needs daily to fight and get stronger.

If you can't donate, it is OK. I just ask that you share this story.
