Jackson is a special needs pet. He lived in California until his owner died and the family turned him into the pound (at that time his name was Duke and he was 5 years old).
Southern California Giant Schnauzer Rescue sprung him from jail and, when a family in Arizona showed interest he was sent to Valley of the Sun Giant Schnauzer Rescue. The family was a single mom with 4 teenagers who had just lost a Doberman to an unexpected illness.
Duke was given a new name "Buehler" and one day while in Doggie Day Care, he suffered a spinal stroke and lost the use of the rear of his body so he was given back to Rescue.
When Valley of the Sun GS Rescue had their annual GS Fun Day, Buehler was watching all the other dogs and trying valiantly to join in but it was hard dragging one dead leg and rear end.
Starr and Steve (ages 2 and 6) were at the Fun Day with their owner and took Buehler home to live with them and they gave him a new name: "Jackson".
Jackson is thriving, although still with difficulty moving at times...
he likes his new name and his new pack, his long walks and his swims and he hopes all the pets out there in need can also find a home where they can be accepted for who they
are and can thrive in their new surroundings.
