Jackson was found with very little body fur, far underweight & clearly neglected (possibly beaten), by a local vet in December of 2011. Someone had left Jack tied to the vets door in the middle of a freezing December night.
He was brought to the local pound & was found to be "unadoptable" & had a death-date set for Jan 8th due to age, believed to be 13, tooth decay from neglect (possible beating) & skin condition.
On Jan 6th of 2012 I was at the pound taking photos of adoptable dogs to put online & help them find homes when I saw this little face! It was love at first sight, but they wouldn't let me have him due to his status. I called muttville and within 2 days, on the day he was to be put down, I was taking him home as a foster mom.

Jacks first day home.
After Jacks 1st night with me, I knew his home was here. 
Muttville was amazing in helping with the initial costs. Jack had been beaten & given sub-standard food. Due to the stress & poor nutrition, most of his body fur had fallen out.
The vets said it probably wouldn't grow back, but I'm happy to say within 10 months, he was a fluffy pomerianian again & back to a healthy weight.
Laying in his favorite place while out on a walk
Jack now has a benign fatty tumor that is growing under his front leg which is causing him some discomfort & it's also aggrivating his trachea condition which makes him struggle to catch his breath every time he gets excited.

He is an amazing boy, very sweet & well behaved. He deserves to have some comfort after suffering for the 1st half of his life.
Sadly, due to his condition, I couldn't get insurance for him. I have been taking care of my father for 5 years and work only part time. The expense for this surgery is extremely difficult for me to afford & sadly, I didn't qualify for the credit. I'm hoping with some animal lovers help, we can get Jack back to full health. 
Thanks so much for reading our story. We appreciate all of you.
