Gonzo - Free to A Good Home ....



"Free to a Good Home" is anything but....

While waiting at a bus stop, Alice, (last name withheld), a Howell Township resident, was approached by a woman who advised that she had 2 pups and was looking to find a home for one of them. Alice decided she would give the pup a good home and they met the next day where the pup was handed off. When she got the pup home, Alice realized that the pup was not well. She brought it to a veterinarian who recommended many tests which would cost more than she could afford.

"Gonzo" was brought to the Society's Tinton Falls animal shelter where he was surrendered to our care. The schnoodle type had an abnormal gait due to neurologic abnormalities. Several blood test were taken for evaluation and all have come back with normal results. Gonzo's cerebellar hypoplasia causes jerky movements, uncoordinated motion and he can fall over. The disease does not get better or worse with age but at Gonzo's young age, the prognosis is that he may learn to somewhat compensate for it. Most afflicted animals can lead a fairly normal life if special considerations are given for the animal's disability by a responsible pet owner.

For more information on Gonzo, file number 67974-M, please contact us by e-mail or call - 732-922-0100. Gonzo is at the Society's Tinton Falls animal shelter, located at 2960 Shafto Road, near the Route 33-34 Circle - near the Garden State Parkway Exit 102 (So.), Parkway Exit 100B (North) The Society is open 7 days a week.
