- I got a lot of comments on my last post about Tucker and the condition he lived with. Some of you had no idea he lived with a genetic condition and others of you didn’t understand why he was born looking like a normal pup and by 4 years old looked completely different. So, I’m here to answer questions and clarify any confusion or concern! (Pic is when he was young, video is a day before his pass) Tucker was born with a genetic condition called MPS VI (Muccopolysacharidosis type 6). Its a very rare, genetic condition that is also progressive, which would explain why Tucker was born looking like a β€œnormal” pup, though his development from day one was clearly delayed or in some cases never even happened. People and animals with MPS are lacking the enzyme Arylsulfatase B and this condition is known as a lysosomal storage disorder, lysosomes function as important digestive units within the cells. These enzymes in the lysomes are responsible for the breakdown of certain metabolites such as carbohydrates, sugars, and fats. So, people/animals with MPS end up having abnormal accumulation of these complex carbohydrates in their arteries, joints, skeleton, eyes, ears, skin, and teeth. This build up can also affect the respiratory and nervous system, liver, spleen, and bone marrow. Eventually as a result of the carbohydrate accumulation the cells become progressively damaged, which causes physical deformities and complications through the body. There are several types of MPS, but all are genetic and progressive without treatment, which is still a developing research in finding a cure or purely effective way in managing this crippling condition. That was lengthy!! But, I wanted to give you the info. Tucker was not abused, or kept in a kennel for too long, and he didn’t only have problems with his two front legs. Tucker, the many other MPS pups and kitties, and the thousands of humans living with this condition were born with the disorder, but still live happy lives and are some of the strongest people/animals I’ve met and/or read about! Please, if you want more info visit MPSArmy.org @mps.army OR post a question below and I will try my best to answer it. πŸ’œπŸ˜Š #mps
