About the Campaign
At just 7 months this adorable pup was diagnosed with Pulmonic Stenosis. This s a congenital heart defect of the semilunar valve that is between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery (great vessel that takes blood to the lungs). Meaning the blood flowing from his heart. to his lungs is obstructed.
Jaxx needs a procedure called Ballon Aortic valvuloplasty which will widen the narrow area making the blood flow through the Pulmonic valve easier.

William got Jaxx because he wanted a dog and longed for that companionship. Unfortunately, William is on stability and can’t afford such an expensive procedure. He wants Jaxx to see past 1 years old and Jaxx’s birth defect will not change his mind about caring for him for the rest of his life.
William and his family have begun a Gofundme campaign in order to help Jaxx. They’ve been able to raise a little over $500.00 and hope to raise more to meet their surgery goal of $3322 (low end).
