Puppy Fund

Hi! My name's Marina and this is my puppy, Jaxon, that I will be bringing home in the first week of February, 2021.

I have been suffering with anxiety and panic disorder for the last 7 years and in the past 18 months, I've really struggled to even leave the house due to it. The only times I've been able to go out comfortably are when my friend has brought her dog round and we could go for a walk. My mind was taken out of myself and focused on the dog, instead of focusing on my health (my anxiety is based around health anxiety, emetophobia and agoraphobia) and has led me to be unable to work the dream job I worked hard to achieve and I miss out on everyday things such as shopping, seeing my friends and family etc. And at the age of 24, it's gutting and heartbreaking to miss out on what they say are the best years of your life.

Myself and my family truly believe that Jaxon will be a life saver for me after reading hundreds of articles about how dogs, especially Labrador retrievers, are great "therapy" dogs and I know that having that focus will help dramatically in my recovery. I can even take him to work with me to make me feel more comfortable and to have a constant best friend and not feel alone is critical to me.

Any funds donated, no matter how small, will be massively appreciated and will go towards the care and upkeep of Jaxon.

Thank you so much in advance for your support as it means a great deal.

If you would like to see updates on Jaxon's life journey, I have made him an Instagram account with the following username: @thelabjaxon :)
