Dash is a puggle X boy who was hit by a car. He was taken to a local Humane Society. He suffered a spinal injury, but a wheelchair was donated and now he has an adopter in AL.
DASH: “I guess I dashed when I should have ducked!”
On June 16, 09, I was trying to cross a busy street in Fishers and I thought I had made it to safety. Sadly, the last thing I remember seeing was a big tire come straight at me. I was brought to the HSHC where it was determined that I had suffered a spinal injury. After receiving crucial medical attention, I went into a foster home so that I could recover in a quiet environment. I forgot to mention that I am about 1 ½ years old, an unusual black, tan and white Puggle boy with perhaps a little terrier thrown in for good measure. I’m not very big, but I have a big personality! I’m full of energy and my recovery has been remarkable. Just because I have some paralysis in my hind-quarters, that doesn’t mean I don’t get around. Once I felt strong enough, I enjoyed chasing balls and playing tag with my foster family. You know, when you are a happy kind of guy, you don’t let the hard knocks get you down. I love life! I look on every day as a gift and an opportunity to have fun. I potty on my own and can scoot around so fast my foster mommy can’t even keep up with me!
And THEN, the most exciting thing happened! The people at the shelter found a very nice company that donated a “Dash-sized” wheeled cart just for me! Although I was a bit scared of it at first, once I got the hang of it I just flew around the room, ears flapping, wind in my face, bugs in my teeth..........just kiddin’. But it sure felt great to run again! Now all I need is a forever family who will be happy to have a friendly, out-going dog with just a bit of a challenge. I have a great temperament and I have already been neutered. Really, I am the complete package: a love bug on wheels!
