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.

I run a bully breed rescue, Yankee Terrier Rescue, and while Jackson can never be replaced I would be happy to help find Joe a dog when he is ready. So sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Our fur babies are so precious to us. Please adopt a Pitty, there are so many that need love and are being killed or used for dog fighting. Here are rescues in your area http://dog.rescueme.org/Montana but there are also specific Pitty rescue groups everywhere that are full because no one wants them.

This hospital he is at should offer up the Crime Victim Unit Info, it is a Program thru the state, in addition to what ever you gather here! There are tons of resources available out there for him financially, but it's the emotional and physical support , that will be needed most now!

Wow, just wow... people are insane! I hope that Joe recovers well and is able to mourn Jackson and honor him by providing love to another dog. Jackson can't be replaced but for those of us that love our animals so much we know that we can't be without one either.

So sorry for his loss. I had to put my pit down today (8yrs old) due to an injury this morning. Pits are incredibly easy to come by, I hope he can find happiness but I could never just replace my dog.

So devastating... I pray for Joe and grieve for the loss of Jackson... I work in rescue, and what better way to honor Jackson's memory than by saving a pit bull in need... a beautiful, block-headed baby that is facing the end and yet only wants to give love... my own red-nosed, big-headed foster girl and I will keep you all in our thoughts.
