We adopted Knox in September 1, 2015 he was on high alert for death row. A part of me felt crushed and I had to help this dog in need. He was only about "11-13 months" as the shelter had told me. He was going to be euthanized the next day at 12:30. 

I awoke the next morning and got in the car from the North Fork and raced to Brooklyn to wait in the shelter for 2 hours, they were unsure if he was still alive. I had already felt I needed to help this pup in need from being euthanized at such a young age. A nurse came out and said "Who is here for Lazarus?" I stood up and two women at the shelter started crying. They said they were just about to bring him in to put him down and they couldn't believe I just got there. I went out back to meet him and he kissed me on the cheek and fell into my arms. I started crying and said "what do i do now?" The nurse said "You say you want to adopt him" I said "I wanna adopt him!" She cried and he went home to the North Fork with me that night. 

He met his brother Sinatra that day, who was more than jealous we were bringing another dog in but showed him who was boss. 

We also quickly changed his name from Lazarus to Knox.
Knox slept in between us that night and put both arms on my shoulders and licked my cheek I felt a tear and thought damn, that is his way of thanking me. 



After a year and a half and many stressful days ,many loving days, some relationship fights, some loving moments,  some traumatic moments there came a time where Knox became too much to handle. With us he is an absolut mush but with other dogs other than Sinatra he was a terror.  And as much as I loved that he wanted to protect me for saving him it became very scary. What if it was my nephew? What if it was my niece? 

It took me a heart wrenching 2 months to get here and I tried every way not to, Knox was reaching the point of where I first got him. 

Until we came across a Sanctuary that will take him in. He will get extensive training. He will run with dogs, he will eat a healthy diet, he will play. And most of all he will live. 

I can't explain how much I hurt for this but the hope that he will not be euthanized is more than that hurt and is pushing us to do this GoFundMe and ask for a little help.

The Sanctuary is donation based, Knox life cost at his age is an estimated 7,000 dollars. In order to get him in it would be 5,000 up front. We will pay the rest and be able to visit him and know he is well and alive.  Because we can't afford this on our own, we are asking for your help. Even if it is $10.

We plan to create a "Sanctuary Blend' as many of you know Sinatra is on our coffee bags at the shop, this particuliar bag will have a sketch of Knox and each bag sold will go toward the sanctuary as well. We hope that this blend can continue to help not only our dog but many other loving dogs that just need a special environment.


We have the power to be a voice and create a space to raise money where we are at the shop and would intend for more good to come from this experience. Our dog gets a safe and loving home, and hopefully many more after.

Today was one of the hardest days. Knox starts his new journey, at the sanctuary. I felt I couldn't hug or kiss him nearly enough, I've fought for you since day one and I won't stop fighting for you to have a good life Knox. Thank you to everyone who donated, now I will be sad.
