We don´t know much about him… a dog without a past, he was found on Sunday morning tethered by a leash to the shelter gates, abandoned by his family.
Paralysed, unable to move. Nameless, he looks like a Jackson to me.
At first the shelter workers didn´t pay attention to his awkward position, they thought he was resting, they pulled at him carelessly but hurt him so much that his screams could be heard in all the surrounding streets. Only then did they realise the extent of his injuries and the gravity of his condition and they contacted me.
I asked for Jackson to be rushed to our best Hospital and for them to perform a full Radiological study. X-Rays and a latest-generation CT scan showed the existence of spinal injury.
The herniation is bad, but it can be repaired surgically.
We work with leading experts in trauma surgery and they are nearly certain they can make Jackson walk again. But every surgery has risks…
There are two possible outcomes to this surgery. Jackson will either walk again or he will remain paralysed for life. It´s going to be one or the other.
In order to maximise his chances of recovery we need to operate within the next 24 to 36 hours… If we wait much longer Jackson´s chances will decrease greatly.
You have seen us achieve the impossible before. I give you my word we are going to do everything, and I mean EVERYTHING for Jackson to walk again.
Update 27 of July..

P.S. After he is fully recovered Jackson is going to need an extraordinary family that loves him forever. Please write to me on email@example.com if you are that family.
