This pet is currently being listed by Giant Hearts Giant Dog Rescue, Inc ---- Get to know Jax III ---- Status: Available
Jax is a sweet 5 month old puppy. Doberman/Hound mix.He is a sweet boy, happy and playful. He has a deformity in his spine from the C1 vertebrae to the C4. He currently is required to wear a neck brace to keep his head from moving too much in all directions. The biggest issue is the up and down motion. The C2 is turned and the "wings" of the vertebrae will bruise the spinal cord when he moves his head in an up and down fashion. THe plan is to let him get to as close to 1 yr old as possible and do the neck surgery where they will put a permanent plate in there to secure the bones from injuring the spine. He is healthy and happy otherwise, a very normal pup. He does sway a bit and get a little wonky when he walks from time to time, but nothing like what he did before we did the MRI. He needs to be kept on a leash and not allowed to run all over the place, jump or get too rowdy. He is pretty used to that and is an all around calm boy. He is not house trained because the lady that was fostering to adopt did nothing to teach him. He is back with us now and learning very quickly. He is smart, loving and attentive. He just is special needs. The rescue pays for the surgery at 1 yr old.
Adoption Fee: $350
