For anyone that doesn't know the story, Joe was shot Friday night after work. He was shot at 4 times, the first bullet hit Joe's dog, Jackson. Joe was carrying Jackson because he was in a cast. Jackson was hit in the head, blocking Joe's head from the first bullet, saving his life. Jackson did not make it, for anyone that knew Jackson knew that he was litteraly Joe's best friend. The second shot hit Joe in the ribs and exited out his lower back, clean shot, no organs. Joe is going to be out of work for 6-12 weeks recovering. Joe cuts wood, and tends bar for a living, he won't be able to do either for some time. We would like to raise about 12,000 to cover the price of his rent and bills for 12 weeks as well as get him a new Pit bull. Jackson was a pure bred Red Nose Pit. The dogs are not easy to come by. Any help is greatly apreciated, thank you all for any help you can provide.
