**NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION**

Rex came into our care in June 2020 after we saved him from euthanasia at a non-local shelter. At the shelter, Rex suffered seizures, which are now well controlled with medication. Rex also suffers from irritable bowel syndrome, which requires prescription food and medication.

In the late summer and fall of 2020, Rex began to face a much more serious challenge as he started to struggle with his hind legs. At times, he could not move them properly, they would seize up, and he would drag his back feet until they were bloody.

Rex underwent an MRI, which revealed a "markedly compressive right-sided L1-L2 intervertebral disc herniation." In early March, Rex had surgery to correct the compression. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation to regain his strength and mobility.

Until Rex is fully stabilized, he will not be available for adoption.
