❤️ Many people think that owning a disabled dog is an inconvenience or too much work. To clear up any misconceptions, we’ve decided to explain what it’s like to care for one.
They love to go on walks just like any other dog. Play fetch, go for swims, car rides and hikes. Disabled dogs enjoy everything non-disabled dogs do!
There are a few extra steps to care for a disabled (wheelchair) dog but we would never describe it as inconvenient.
The only difference is you have to put a dog in a wheelchair for walks, a process that takes less than 30 seconds once you learn. And you need to help them urinate by gently pressing on their bladder five times a day. The technique, once learned, is very quick and easy.
We would love to see more disabled dogs get adopted and find loving homes. The extra care is minimal at best, and they absolutely deserve it.
❤️ With your help, we can do better
