Review for Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue, Battle Ground, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue was contacted by a breeder
asking if they might take a puppy who had little to no use of her
rear legs the decision was easy. Dogs with medical needs are
hard to find homes for, let alone one that can’t walk on its own.
The puppy would be safe with a volunteer foster while a diagnosis
was sought. -That foster home was our home, that puppy was
Melody, and this is our story. On January 28th we officially
adopted her.Melody is a 9-month-old Boxer, who is full of life and spunk! She was born with spina bifida. Three months ago, she had to have a bilateral rear leg amputation. Before her amputation surgery, her legs were pulling on her spine, causing pain while she was in her wheelchair. Since the surgery, she loves her wheelchair and is able to be part of the pack! She is able to go everywhere in her wheelchair, and loves it. Melody even pulls on her leash, wanting to run. Her Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair has given her life as a dog back to her. She’s no longer a disabled dog, she is part of the family and can do everything that the other dogs do! She is currently training to be a therapy dog to visit hospitals to serve as an inspiration to others. She loves new people and going places.
We want to thank Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue for all their help and support. This is an awesome organization that I'm honored to be part of.
