Capone was picked up as a stray in Phoenix by animal control officers and brought to the East shelter. He was filthy, covered in bird poop, fleas and ticks! At first, it was thought he may have been hit by a car out in the streets because he couldn’t stand or walk very well. Upon further exam it was discovered that he had what’s known as Myoclonus twitching, involuntary movements in his back legs, as a result of an old case of Distemper, which he was lucky enough to survive. The disease had become neurological, causing him difficulty walking or standing. The damage can improve with exercise, good nutrition & lots of love. Although we suspect that poor, neglected Capone will always show some effects of the disease he beat and won, we know it hasn’t dampened his affect and he’s a happy-go-lucky little guy who longs for love & affection.
Capone’s Updates: Capone has officially been adopted by his foster mom! Congrats to Capone, his new mom and his new doggy siblings!
