I had to remake Jones' go fund me because of someone trolling the comments section.  Have some tact! Luckily all the fund were able to clear from the last one. 

Updated: 2/15/2019 
Jones is having trouble with his back legs and I'll be spending a week helping him to go the bathroom, get around, eat and drink. 

Update: 2/14/2019 They're keeping Jones for another 24 hours, he's having mobility issues in his back legs that the vet says will correct over time. When he comes home I'll be spending a lot of time with him helping him on that road to recovery. I can not thank you all enough!

Update: 2/14/2019 GREAT NEWS! We got a loan from our extended family and Jones is going into surgery. The vet told us he has a 95% chance that he'll have full use of his back legs after surgery, that it'd straight forward and by the book. I can not thank all of you enough! I save no words just happy tears!

I just want to thank everyone who came out of the woodwork and others we sought out who helped us steer through the storm as our reality went sideways. 7 Months ago we lost our dog BooBoo who was suffering from pancreatitis, so much so she wasn't out dog anymore, she was pain incarnate. A mass of fiery nerves firing pain everywhere like an internal tommygun. The hardest decision we ever made was to let her go. She was 15.
We couldn't save her life but we could another. My wife found Jones in the tri-city shelter. Those big eyes, that serious face, and tap dance - we fell in love and like an eBay auction I swooped in and bought him before a dog hoarder had a chance to add him to her collection.
Jones is the sweetest, most loving dog, though he had a lot of the wild in him. One of the vets theorized he may have been a ranch dog. For months we and he trained with the best trainer in Fremont Beth Koenig . Goes graduated a session early. He's come a long way from the defensive stray he was.
And as life does, he went from a loving happy pup to a big-eyed fearful ball of pain. We took him to ER. He was first diagnosed with GI, last night he was diagnosed with a defective spine common in long breeds. Being back in the ER room with the love of our world brought back the thundering feelings of helplessness, panic, stress and fear of when we were there looking into Boo's eyes from the last time.
So his defective spine - we were told it was common in long breeds. We never knew. They assured us that they've worked on hundreds like him.
But they needed the money today before they could start. Already my wife and I have been beat up with lack of sleep, worry and panic. Then my cousin Raymond Beltran was like "Do a go fund me! Do it!", at this point i'm still in shock, haven't slept, going through the motions, and threw one together with typos galore.
I can't express how choked up, tearyeyed, humbled, grounded I am from all of your support. This has been one of the worst weeks of our life. We were able to obtain his bill today and he's going into surgery later tonight. This little dog, who was once abandoned, left in a shelter, who had no one - now has the internet literally having his back. I can not THANK YOU ALL enough!
I think most of us go through life never knowing our impact on people and in every tragedy we're reminded we're never alone.

Jones Update: He's getting his stitches removed tomorrow. No more FrankenJones and he's starting to stand and hop on his back legs. The vets are amazed at his progress. We still need to help him go outside for his bathroom breaks (and have regular wardrobe changes because of it), but I'm confident he'll be walking soon! Thank you everyone for your supports, as talking to friends earlier, I'm still in shock of the love and generosity of all of you!
