Country music singer-songwriter RaeLynn's service dog, Jazz, is currently battling cancer. More on the German Shepard's condition here!

Country music songbird RaeLynn has shared some bummer news back in August— her service dog, Jazz the German Shepherd, is battling cancer. The working canine is trained to detect changes in the artist’s blood sugar levels due to Type 1 diabetes.

“Asking all of you to pray for my Jazz. He got diagnosed with Cancer 2 weeks ago. We removed it but it’s growing pretty fast. I’m praying for a complete healing in his body. He brings so much joy to me and Joshs life. I am beyond sad but I truly believe in miracles,” RaeLynn shared over the summer via Instagram.

Jazz has been an important part of RaeLynn’s life for a couple years now and came from Global K9 Protection Services in Nashville. The other members of Jazz’s ‘pack’ include RaeLynn’s husband, Josh Davis, and the couple’s Chihuahua, Dolly, who is named after music legend Dolly Parton.

“Jazz is doing better,” RaeLynn recently shared with Taste of Country about her pup. “The cancer is in his mouth and there really is not much we can do about it. We are basically doing surgery roughly every 12 weeks to cut it out.”

Despite dealing with the impact of cancer, the German Shepard is still has a lot of energy.

“He’s acting a whole lot better. He’s alert and he loves to play ball and he’s still totally active, so we just plan to take it day by day,” the artist added.

In 2017, Jazz accompanied RaeLynn while she was on country music star Blake Shelton‘s Doing It to Country Songs Tour. RaeLynn was on Team Blake when she appeared on The Voice‘s second season in 2012.

We wish Jazz the best as he continues to fight cancer! Share this update with other fans and let’s take a look at the faithful pup’s best recent moments below!

“Tailgate” Lyrics

We were a couple kids in a pick up fooling around
We learned how to keep it so nobody found out
Mama don’t need to know everything
Some things you keep to yourself
Like dumb things you do when you’re seventeen on the DL

But if that tailgate ever tells, I’d be the small talk of the town
I’m sure I’d catch all kinds of hell for every time we laid it down
In the back of that race red F-150
We get to kissin’, we get to slippin’ off clothes, and nobody knows And only will, if that tailgate ever tells

Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
If that tailgate ever tells
Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
If that tailgate ever tells

You, me, we had bare feet hanging off the edge
Two drinks, then we lay it on back in the bed
Mama don’t need to know everything
Some things you keep to yourself
We knew that’s all that we’d ever be, on the DL

But if that tailgate ever tells, I’d be the small talk of the town
I’m sure I’d catch all kinds of hell for every time we laid it down
In the back of that race red F-150
We get to kissin’, we get to slippin’ off clothes, and nobody knows And only will, if that tailgate ever tells

Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
If that tailgate ever tells
Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
If that tailgate ever tells

What happens on a dirt road stays on a dirt road out here
What we’re doing in the dark when we’re underneath the stars
Is our own business

But if that tailgate ever tells, I’d be the small talk of the town
I’m sure I’d catch all kinds of hell for every time we laid it down
In the back of that race red F-150
We get to kissin’, we get to slippin’ off clothes, and nobody knows And only will, if that tailgate ever tells

Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
If that tailgate ever tells
Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
Tailgate don’t tell, no
Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
Don’t tell on me
Tailgate don’t tell on me, don’t tell on me
