Aleksa’s Best Friend Jack

Aleksa’s Best Friend Jack

Jack followed Aleksa home one day in Wicker Park while she was out on a pack walk with her dogs. He was a severely emaciated (35 lbs) adult shepherd who was covered with open cuts and scabs. Aleksa cut his collar off that was embedded in his neck and from that point Jack was a member of her pack.

Although Jack had a rough past, it was all behind him once proper leadership, exercise, obedience training and affection were regimented. Jack was quite a character and he was never seen without a kong in his mouth. Jack developed degenerative myelopethy, an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system rendering his back legs useless. Aleksa had a wheel chair made for Jack (www.eddieswheels.com) and he was able to run and play fetch just as he did before.
