About Jackson

"Jacksons Journey" is a story of a chow chow purebreed that was slated for death 5-27-2013. He looks a little different than most pups... he appears to have been neglected all of his life. He is on a journey to good health again... with your help =)

His story...

Jackson was picked up as a stray in the city of Shasta Lake, Ca. He sat for 5 days while we networked him to rescues only to find out he would be euthanized on the 6th day of his stay. Jackson had such a loving personality there was no way we could lose him because he wasn't in perfect condition.
With Jacksons story, we hope to inspire others to take a chance and adopt the less adoptable shelter animal. Every one of them deserves a chance at a real life.

UPDATE AND HELP NEEDED!!! fundraiser below

Sweet Jackson. named so because he walks like Michael Jackson's "moon walk" has many medical issues that we will need to treat...


1. His neck abcess is NOT cancer It was diagnosed as a Sialocele which is treatable with surgery. His salivary gland is overfull.

2. He also had a skin scrape. The skin scrape showed that he was positive for demodex mange. He was also diagnosed with a secondary bacterial infection on his skin. This accounts for the oozing in his feet, the oiliness on what little hair he had left, and his smell. Both conditions can be cured by giving him medicated baths and oral antibiotics.

3. Jackson was also diagnosed with entropion and bilateral ear infections. Entropion is an abnormal curling of his eyelid. This causes irritation of the cornea. ...

4. He has yeast infections in his mouth and feet.

5. Sadly, his heartworm test showed that he is positive for heartworm. Heartworm as many of you know is a very expensive condition to treat. It requires strict kennel rest and monitoring for about 3 months.

BOTTOM LINE: Everything is treatable. We just, frankly, need help. I am thinking his treatment will be $3000 maybe a little more. Thats seems impossible to some, but we know there is a world of animal lovers out there willing to give $5, $10 $20 for his care. We will be setting up sites on all media forms... we hope to go nationwide with his story. Thats how we plan to raise this kind of money... but we CANNOT do it alone. We need help. We need you to share his story far and wide...every dog lovers site, every chow dog lovers site, any site that you think can help help reach this goal for his treatment.

I am 100% certain we can do make that 110%. One step forward at a time. He will have a facebook page of his own tonight. Please check back!
