Marco - Paralyzed, Walks on Front Legs



In mid-May an Irvington resident brought in Marco, her 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier for release. His rear legs are curled up behind him and has difficulty in walking but walks on his front legs. X-rays were taken by the Society's veterinarians and he has also been seen by outside veterinary specialists. Extensive bloodwork and biopsies have been taken by Society veterinarians and shared in conferences with specialty veterinarians to determine the cause of Marco's leg problem. He is also receiving water therapy sessions to help Marco work his leg muscles. The previous owner could not accurately describe the problems with the dog .... and the explanation did not seem to fit the dog's debilitation.

Watch a video of Marco.

There are no broken bones and the vets are conferring on the proper course of action to take. Our thanks to all of our donors who have placed their trust in contributing to the Society's Res-Q Fund . This is where your donations are greatly needed!

Upon his arrival, Marco had a worried look upon his face ... .that is until he garnered most of the attention, showers of kisses and hugs .... and lots of toys. We will keep our readership updated on the physical problems and the corrective action.

In the meantime, he has a spacious office where he enjoys having room to move around, play with toys and socialize with new friends. L-21509 For more information on Marco, call the Society at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us .

If you'd like to visit, the Jack Russell Terrier can be seen at the Society's Popcorn Park shelter, located off Lacey Road in Forked River, just off Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway. You can also help by contributing to his care ... a donation to our Res-Q Fund helps us to help Marco and many others.
