Thor is a 6 month old puppy who was abandoned by his owners because his back legs didn’t work properly. Thor was diagnosed with a spinal condition which is why he has trouble walking. Thor has been going through intense rehabilitation everyday to better his chance being able to walk again. He is so sweet and absolutely loves attention. He will steal your heart. He needs a medical foster or adopter who is willing to work with Thor!
There will be help provided to a foster or an adopter on how to work with him and how to handle a special needs dog.
Thor is continuing to make progress- most noticeably in in his overall stability. He is better able to engage to his core maintain balance and prevent himself from falling when standing/walking. He is also able to posture better for potty purposes and does not end up sitting down when using the bathroom. Another noticeable improvement is that he is filling out a bit in general-his spine and bones in his hind limbs are not as prominent as before. We have started some dry treadmill therapies in addition to underwater treadmill he receives cold laser therapy, stretches, body awareness training/strenghtening exercises, and electroacupuncture.
We have a volunteer who is a vet tech who specializes in handicap dogs and she can come over to work with Thor and teach you how to handle him and his exercises! He’s great with other dogs and is looking for his forever home! If you’re interested in giving this sweet boy a second chance at life please apply online today!
