Gage found himself in a kill shelter in Odessa, TX about 3 years ago. He has a frosty face and given this they listed him as 10 years old. Well Gage was more like 18 months old and very spunky like young Boston’s are. 
 
We noticed right away that Gage had a hard time calming down and being still (more so than your typical Boston). He climbed everything and no amount of verbal commands would help manage his behavior. We had him evaluated by our veterinarians and he was diagnosed with Horner’s Syndrome. This is common in cats but not very common in dogs. This means his sensory system doesn’t function properly. He doesn’t know where his body is in space because his proprioception doesn’t work normally. He also processes verbal commands slower. He responds quicker when you pair a verbal command with a visual signal. 
 
He’s an amazing dog who absolutely loves kids and men and wants nothing more than to please his human. He receives monthly chiropractic adjustments that help manage his Horner’s. 
 
Gage has been with us for 3 years and he’s just waiting for the right family who understands his special needs and has the patience to work with him.
