Dog in Need Receives Wheelchair for Paralyzed Legs

Two weeks ago in Nashua, New Hampshire, a dog that is now known as Keebler was rescued by a good Samaritan, who noticed that the pup was having trouble walking.  The stray animal was indeed having difficulty walking because he couldn’t use his hind legs.  He was then taken to the Humane Society of Greater Nashua, where he was checked by the organization’s vet. With Keebler’s condition, the group’s officials thought of putting him down to end his suffering.  But one call to Handicappedpets.com, a company located in Amherst, NH that specializes in products and services that help handicapped pets, changed the pup’s life good.

The company generously donated a wheelchair for Keebler that’s worth almost $200.  It was sort of out of the blue and it seemed like a great opportunity to help this guy out.  Most of the time, we see what we saw right here. The dog gets in it and is immediately up and running,” said Mark Robinson, president of Handicappedpets.com. The wheelchair really helps the pup move around.  He can now walk and run without dragging his hind legs.  But before the 8-year-old Daschund can find his forever home, he to get a clean bill of health first which currently is a problem.  Aside from his mobility problem, Keebler is also suffering from an eye disease and dental disease.  He needs to undergo an eye surgery and some procedures for his dental disease.

The Humane Society is asking for help to get Keebler the medical treatment that he needs.  They have launched a gofundme campaign for the pup with a goal of $2,500 that will cover Keeblers operations and X-rays.

Dr. Christine Schlupf, Director of Veterinary Services of the Humane Society of Greater Nashua said, “We’re hoping to get that done in the next 10 days or so and then he’ll be ready to go to his new home.” She added, “As soon as people find out that dogs can live happy, healthy lives in walkin’ wheels, then it becomes a no-brainer. It’s ‘hey, I can spend another couple years with my best friend.”

Getting his mobility back has boosted Keebler’s life.  He is one happy dog despite of his health issues. If you want to help Keebler, simply click the link http://www.gofundme.com/rk9hnkw.

We would like to thank Handicappedpets.com for donating a wheelchair to Keebler and to all the Humane Society staff in Nashua, NH for taking good care of the pup.  We hope that Keebler will get well soon and find the forever and loving home he deserved.
