One of the shelter workers at Dekalb sent out a plea for Decker. She had a soft-spot for his sweet nature and desperation for affection. Decker was at the shelter for 2 weeks with clear neurological issues causing his balance to be off and he tumbled over constantly. He was in need of vet care and we were able to get him what he needs.
Although Decker cannot walk very far without falling over, he is super sweet and dog friendly. He saw Dr Parks at GVS and his issues are definitely cerebral. A blood test revealed Decker has Cerebellar Ataxia (NCL-A) which is an autosomal recessive neurological disease. His balance and vision will progressively get worse. Decker has to be supported 100% by a person in order to walk. He has a full body harness to make it a little bit easier, but when he's indoors, he is happy to sit on the couch with you. When he is supported by his harness and his person, he loves being outside and loves to 'chase' squirrels (we just walking him where he wants to go and let him pretend). His crate needs to be padded because of his involuntary jerking motions that cause him to sway from side to side and fall over into the crate walls. He is crate-trained, but does not have access to roam freely in the house at this time. He is currently located at the Pit Bull Palace where there is not a space customized to suit his needs to prevent him from injuring himself. Decker needs time to warm up to new people and is not suited for a home with kids. He truly relies 100% on people and would love a foster or adopter that is willing and able to accommodate his special needs.
Our adoption fee is $300. All dogs are current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, on heartworm prevention, and are fed top of the line grain-free food.www.savingpitbulls.org
