Caseworker: Laurie


Junior is a handsome 8-month-old Mastiff X with a testicular infection, tumor, and possible testicular torsion. He needs to be neutered (a potentially more complex surgery due to possible torsion), have the tumor biopsied, and receive a course of antibiotics to fight the testicular infection. Junior needs treatment as soon as possible; if the infection is not addressed and the swelling relieved within the testicle, he may become septic, which is seriously life-threatening.

Here's what Junior's human mom has to say about him:

Junior is a 8 month old Mastiff X that recently came to join our family. He has a testicular torsion that has caused him pain and inflammation and resulted in a severe infection. He is running a very high fever and is really lethargic, we took him to the emergency vet and he is now at our regular vet.

We are hoping that Junior can have his surgery on Wednesday. His humans have already spent more than $600 on his treatment, and they need our help.

If you are able to help Junior with his surgery, please click here to make your donation. Designate your gift "GF - Junior Taylor."

If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Don't forget to indicate the pet's name when making your donation.

Thank you for considering a donation to help Junior.

Always willing to help a little guy that needs a neuter.  Praying for a good outcome on the biopsy.

THANK YOU for taking this guy in.  Every animal deserves a home that cares.  And thank you IMOM for caring enough to help him too.

Welcome to IMOM and THANK YOU for saving this boy...

You said that he had been living out side...BLESS YOU for rescuing him and letting him inside...

I know that mastiffs are such loving dogs...and they are so loyal...I know a wonderful mastiff named Chief and he is something...he weights ALOT but his personality is SO SWEET...

Can you tell us a little about this boy???  You said in Introductions that you had other animals also...all rescues...can you tell us how they like Junior??

He has such a SAD look with that dreaded cone on...

Will be anxious to hear what the vet has to say this morning...

IMOM angels...this little boy is in PAIN....Judy

After speaking with the Vet, IMOM has opted to pledge the balance needed to get Junior into surgery right away this morning.

He shouldn't be made to wait any longer, as his condition is very serious.


All paws are crossed for Junior to have a smooth surgery. :pawprint:


Thank you to all our donors who also contribute to our General Fund, that made our pledge today possible. We love you all !

Junior's surgery went well and he is already perked up, i will pick him up tomorrow morning. Junior has only lived with us a short couple weeks and acclimated to indoor life really well. He loves our other dog's and cats and adores children. Such a gentle giant....Our other 2 dogs have recently had heatlh issues  that required surgery (rather costly) and the histopaths showed they have mast cell tumors (cancerous) so my family was in no position to take on Junior when we did since we were still recovering from the financial stress of the other two dogs medical care, we just couldnt leave Junior to live the way he was living. Thanks again so much to IMOM and supporters i cant express how grateful my family is to you all.....Will let you know how Junior is tomorrow...

I'm so happy to read that Junior's surgery went well! I hope by now he is back home with you, and I'm looking forward to your update.

I'm going to move Junior's thread to Happy Endings. Thanks to all of the angels who helped make this possible for Junior and his family!

Junior came home this morning and is like a new dog, he is feeling great. Actually have to keep on him to stay calm and quite.  Totally different dog than when he went into the vet...His appetite is great and he was so happy to see the kids when they got home from school...I cant thank IMOM enough Junior wouldnt have lived if not for the surgery. Thanks so much for saving Junior....After we recover from the financial strains from the animals the past couple months our family has already decided we would love to donate to help other pets in need.......
