I started fostering Peach in mid April after she was hit by a car and left paralyzed from the waist down at about 4 months old. When I met Peach her back legs were stiff and atrophied and she dragged them behind her while she held herself up by her forelimbs. She showed signs of being able to feel a pain sensation in her hind legs which gave us hope that she just may be able to walk on all 4’s again. Peach had been using an old, half broken wheelchair to get around. I decided to get her a brand new wheelchair to help keep her as comfortable as possible and give her the best chance of ever walking again. After weeks and weeks of at-home physical therapy, k-laser treatments, and acupuncture; Peach was back on all fours and walking. Now she’s still not the prettiest walker, but she can really get around.
Despite everything she’s been through, Peach has always been so happy and just bursting with energy. Peach loves to be outdoors, play with toys, go for walks, and at the end of the day snuggle right up into your lap. Peach would love to be the center of your attention all the time. Because of Peach’s crave for attention and sometimes lack of social cues around other animals it would be best for Peach to live in a home with no other fur-siblings or very young children. Since most of her life has been about her physical health and she’s still very much a puppy; Peach would really benefit from some basic training to help her blossom into the best dog she can be. Peach is house trained and crate trained. This girl is so special and really deserves to find the best home for her.
