There can be an increase from mild to severe in some forms of inherited ataxia. It depends on the degree of ataxia a dog has; in most cases dogs are mildly affected and can live normal lives. There seems to be an increased likelihood of inherited ataxia amongst Staffordshire and Jack Russell terriers. There are all types of studies and research being done to better understand why some breeds seem to be affected more than others.
You can gain a lot of personal satisfaction by adopting your next pet through an animal rescue organization. You know you have done something to help and your new pet will show its appreciation. If you are interested in adopting through one of the many animal shelters, it is easy to find one in your area. Your vet can give you the contact information for organizations near you. Most of the time, these pets are kept in private homes (foster homes) until they are adopted. This gives the animal time to be socialized with other pets, children and time to get used to living in a home.
