Hunter was found on the streets of Hialeah unable to move his entire rear. His legs were totally atrophied. He had a severe UTI, a bad hot spot and raw rear nails and paws where he had been laying and dragging himself around.... and a will to live that is unprecedented.
Hunter has tested positive for the gene for DM(degenerative myelopathy). This is an non-curable progressive disease akin to ALS in humans. The Specialist's could not absolutely verify that Hunter actually has DM w/o tests impossible at this time.
Everyone who meets Hunter loves him. He gets along with everyone. Loves kids and other dogs. He loves to play... even in his cart. Please don't get me wrong... Hunter is currently a 24/7 dog. We hope and pray that he will, in the right circumstances, improve with lots of TLC and a firm hand to make him learn his boundaries. But then again, he may not improve.
Dogs like Hunter are the ones that make your heart sing and also break it when it's time to say goodbye. But you'll know that you've done a good deed giving him a new beginning as well as an awesome ending.
