A tiny handicapped dog named Selina was awarded a very big honor when she was inducted into the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association Hall of Fame. It was the first time a dog in a wheelchair became an honoree.
Selina is a Chihuahua mix that was left partially paralyzed in her hind legs after being hit by a car. She was adopted by veterinary technician, Melissa Stevens, and became the official greeter at Maywood Veterinary Clinic where Melissa works.
Dr. Jay Buchholz said he nominated Selina for the Animal Hall of Fame because “in spite of all that she has endured, Selina remains a very happy, go lucky dog.”
Selina’s disability doesn’t hold her back. She can be seen cruising around the clinic in her wheelchair performing her duties of greeting patients and their pet parents.
Melissa is grateful to entire staff at Maywood Veterinary Clinic for supporting her decision to adopt Selina and adding to her quality of life.
