Buffy is the name of this little ball of black fur who is having the time of her life running around in her new dog wheelchair. Her pet mom is overjoyed as she watches her paralyzed dog maneuver a cart for the first time.
Dog wheelchairs can be a miracle for paraplegic pets. Buffy’s cart was a donation funded by a small but dedicated group called Mango on a Mission. Mango is a Cairn terrier who was rescued from a ditch on the side of the road in Fort Worth, TX. She had a broken back and pelvis and her hind end was paralyzed. Judy Walter saw Mango’s picture and instantly fell in love. She adopted Mango and together they now raise funds for wheelchairs for disabled dogs whose families can’t afford to buy one. Each cart is custom built for the recipient by Ruff Rollin Wheelchairs for Dogs.
Mango was recently named a finalist for the 2016 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards® The public is invited to vote for their favorite finalist through August 24 at www.herodogawards.org.
We wish Buffy a happy life rolling in her cart and wish Mango good luck in the Hero Dog Awards.
