A Paralyzed Pit Bull Learns to Walk Again

Pitbull walks again

Today I am going to share another amazing story of a paralyzed pit bull who learned to walk again.  Last year, in Faulkner County, Arkansas a dog was hit by a vehicle and was found in a ditch by the Humane Society of Faulkner County volunteers. The pooch suffered serious injuries from the incident that caused the animal to be paralyzed.  Now the paralyzed dog is making a wonderful recovery and learning how to walk for the second time around.  The rescue group’s volunteers named the pup Girlie Girl.

Girlie Girl is a cute pit bull.  She is called a miracle dog by the volunteers who found her a year ago.  Apparently, after a few months of recovery she was able to use her legs again but one of her back foot is giving her trouble hindering her to walk. The pup was almost put down but her foster dad, J.R. Willey, didn’t accept the idea as a way to solve the problem.  Instead he considers it to be the “last resort.”

Girlie Girl didn’t give up and the volunteers asked for help from Snell Prosthetic and Orthotic Laboratory which is located in Conway.  The company didn’t hesitate to help the injured pooch.  Josh Ketelsen an employee of Snell made a special brace for one of her back foot.  The brace will keep the foot from limping and keeps it in place as well. With the help of the special brace, Girlie Girl now have four working feet that helps her walk and move around by herself.  The pooch is so thankful to Ketelsen that she gives him lots of love and kisses every time she sees him.

Everything seems to be going fine with the dog’s life now but she still need one more thing, and that’s a loving family she can call her own.  Girlie Girl is up for adoption and the adoption fee is $150.  If you would like to adopt her please contact Judi at [email protected].

This pooch sure made an incredible recovery.  She did not only survive the deadly incident, she’s also able now to get around on her own.  A big thanks to the volunteers, her foster dad and to the prosthetic and orthotic company Snell for helping Girlie Girl get her life back.
