Jett was rescued by A.D.O.P.T. just minutes before he was scheduled to be euthanized. He was found as a stray and taken into the shelter for the mandatory stray hold. As soon as his hold was up, he was put on the euthanasia list due to his fearfulness in the shelter. A.D.O.P.T. came across a video of him at the shelter in his kennel rocking back and forth all day, and the group knew they could help him. When A.D.O.P.T. received Jett, he was urinating massive amounts of blood and he had to be rushed to the vet for emergency treatment. After numerous tests, the doctor determined Jett had a life-threatening kidney infection and was also deaf. He was immediately put on antibiotics and it was determined Jett would have to undergo additional testing to rule out bladder cancer.
The CUDDLY community once again came through and donated more than $1,500 for Jett's medical treatment and diagnostic tests. The good news is that with just one more week of antibiotics, the kidney infection seems to have cleared up, and the ultrasound showed no tumors. Jett's infection was so severe that the bleeding has sporadically reoccurred, even while on antibiotics. After his round antibiotics are complete, if the bleeding stops, Jett will be neutered and he will be one step closer to being ready for adoption. While Jett is recovering, A.D.O.P.T. has been teaching him basic obedience commands using sign language like sit, down, stay and walking on a leash. They say Jett is a big teddy bear with lots of energy and a loving disposition, who loves to play with his toys and can't get enough of his Nylabones (they're his favorite chews)!
