My name is Rachel Neil, I am the proud owner of Maxx! (my 4yo rescue dog with a troubled past). We have a classic love story that I will try to keep short.

Maxx was in a situation where he has been severly neglected, found by his original owners unable to even stand. He than spent a week in an animal hospital because he was dehydrated, starved, and near to death. The original owners did not what to put him back in the abusive situatuion he has came from. they asked a mutual friend if he could stay with her for awhile.

I moved in with this same friend the summer of 2016 (a handful of months after Maxx did). After finally ending a two year long abusive relationship of my own, I had  PTSD, depression, and a whole lot of health problems that continue.

The night I moved in I met Maxx, and it was the first feeling of happiness I had  in what felt like millennia (I am crying as I type this). This dog and me instantly bonded, I swore my soul connected to his. From there on out me and Maxx did everything together. He has a gentle heart and strong loyalty.

In the last 2 years we taught each other how to build trust, experience happiness (in even the saddest times), learned that without dark there can be no light, how to feel safe, and my favorite: understanding unconditional love. He has made everything I have experienced in life worth it, because with out that path I wouldn't have met him.

Sob story over: this is why you lovely people are here!
I took Maxx in for his 3 year shots recently and the vet brought up some concerns. We ran $400 dollars worth of tests and from the results decided he needs an ultrasound and CAT scan to find out if his issues are cancerous (which will lead
to many medications and surgery) or hopefully something else, but the chances of that look slim. I am 21 and I work 2 part-time jobs to make ends meet for him and I, while giving us the best life I possibly can. His medical expenses have hit a place where I alone cannot cope. We would be more than floored with any donation, prayers, and/or messages of support. The gratitude I have for you even reading all of this is truly bigger than you can imagine. The money would be used to cover all of his medical costs, and if there is any residual we will donate it to our local animal shelter.

Sorry for the late update, I’ve been taking care of Mr. conehead. Maxx has his surgery on Thursday, and everything went well, he doesn’t like his meds very much, but he is already back to his hyper, ball addicted self. I’m so thankful for every single one of you. With out you all my poor baby boy would be suffering, and now we get to live our our lives together.

So yesterday was out big appointment, Maxx was a champ and the Dr. couldn’t stop talking about how good he was. We found out that Maxx wasn’t nurtured correctly, we foresee some puppy support cases in our near future . Because of this he has hypertrophy in his prostate, along with some pretty large cysts. This Causing the inflammation and bloody urine. Having one testicle intact unfortunately has caused all of his problems and will continue to cause more problems as he goes. Once done, everything should decrease by 50% in 3 weeks or less and only gets better from there. There is a mass in his residual testicle that they want biopsied just to be sure there isn’t cancer present. We scheduled his appointment for the 31st of this month, it is classified as exploratory surgery because they don’t know what they will find, where it is, or how long it will take. I am lowering my goal to 2500, please continue sharing and sending love. We appreciate every single one of you, you can’t imagine the help you have provided my doggy family.
