In case you haven’t met Mama yet, here’s a quick version of her “story” - came to us from Guam with concerns she’d never walk - well, that’s not what she thought! Turns out she wasn’t shot or hit by a car but had a bacterial infection in her spine rendering her partially paralyzed - the loving care of an amazing foster, a great team of veterinarians and PT specialists, and look at this video…. yes - walking and can go on hikes etc per her foster mom - she never tires - EVER!!!
We have all the old videos to show you (you can see some below but we want to focus on the future, not the past - this girl needs a home - she’s okay with other dogs but boy would she prefer her own person who is active and can keep up with her (we never thought we’d be saying that)
We’d love to tell you more about this trooper - please don’t hesitate to ask - you can email: email@example.com and be put in touch with her foster mom!
All photos are new and updated - she’s amazing in a car - calm, cool, collected
She ADORES her foster mom’s two children - adores them, not even kidding - should have children in her new home.
What a lesson to teach your family and kids - anything is possible with hard work and the kindness of people who help by donating their time, their funds and their prayers!!!
Look at this girl go - nothing’s keeping her down!!! https://youtu.be/2CYm3O_1Qko
This little lady came to Paws New England all the way from Guam! One of our volunteers saw her story on Facebook and because she had experience with paralyzed dogs, she asked if we could help her. The arrangements were made with her foster mom in Guam who rescued her and cared for and she arrived in September!!!
So far since being here, Mama has had an evaluation with Dr. Silver, a fantastic neurologist and with an MRI done, the short story is there is a very good chance this girl will walk again. If you watch the video, she uses her hind legs rather consistently- it’s felt with PT, water therapy and other supportive care, this could be life changing for her.
Mama is a doll - she is active, she gets along with the other dogs in her foster home, she loves the children in the home.
She’s is not incontinent and will tell you when she needs to get out - she’s smaller than it appear so she’s quite easily managed getting in and out of her chair - and let’s hope this won’t be forever.
Mama came to Paws New England with donations to help cover her physical therapy for some time and thus that support will continue after her adoption.
Consider adopting this girl and watch her get stronger and stronger! Won’t it be amazing when you get to finally walk her on a leash???
