Just wanted to share the good news that a loving family has adopted the disabled dog and took him home this morning. Here he is all comfy and curled up enjoying the love and attention he’s been receiving all day. He’s been measured by Duke’s Pet Wheelchairs for a custom built wheelchair which should be ready in a few days. Meanwhile, he’s in good spirits, eating well and really, really enjoyed the car ride! We think he will be up and running outdoors on his new wheels in no time. Will post more photos and a longer update by his new family soon.

We have gotten soft bedding for him from Gizri and Duke’s Pet Wheelchairs in Karachi have kindly offered to design and donate a wheelchair for him*. His story has touched a lot of hearts and many of you have written in asking to donate towards his care, some to adopt him and one even to give him some physiotherapy. His adoption offers have been from out of the country and we feel that would be too stressful for him with the travel and long quarantine involved. He is already considerably weaker than when we found him and his hind legs have wasted away. We have also spent upwards of PKR 130,000 towards his boarding at private clinics in the city. For those of you who would like to help here’s what we need: [Read more…] about Update on the disabled dog
