Have you logged onto the Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog Facebook page lately? I am proud to say that it has grown into an active community. In the past week, several pet parents have posted about two paralyzed dogs in need of loving homes. Tami is with a rescue group in Ohio and Biscotti is in Colorado.
It occurred to me that not every pet owner reads Facebook. (Shh, this will be our little secret!) So, I decided to write a quick post about these two cutie pie pups. I hope you’ll share their stories with the pet moms and dads you know.
Meet Tamana – AKA Tami
Tami is with Mid-Ohio Animal Welfare League. She was found abandoned in Iran with a broken back and a bullet in her abdomen. She was nursed back to health by a rescue group in Tehran, but her injuries left her paralyzed and incontinent.
The Mid-Ohio Animal Welfare League brought her to their rescue in Cleveland so she could start a new life. She has been examined by specialists at Ohio State University who say that her paralysis is permanent. Tami has some feeling in her hips so she was enrolled in weekly water and massage therapies. This has helped build her muscles and stability.
Tami is a curious and friendly 5-year-old pup. She wears braces to get around and has a dog wheelchair for long walks. She loves being outdoors. Tami is currently living with a foster family where she enjoys the company of 3 cat housemates.
Mid-Ohio Animal Welfare League would ideally like to place Tami with a family in the Northeast Ohio region so they can help transition her into her new family. The perfect candidate would be someone who works from home or is retired.
If Tami seems like the pup for you, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.

This 3-year-old sweetheart is a 12 lb. Havanese/Yorkie mix. She was picked up by animal control in Colorado Springs, CO after being dragged behind a car. She is paralyzed and incontinent as a result of her injuries.
Biscotti was taken in by The MisFits Dog Rescue. They are an all-volunteer nonprofit group that rescues hard to place dogs who have found themselves alone in the world.
The foster family caring for Biscotti says she is doing well with having her bladder expressed. In fact, Biscotti does not wear a diaper.
This little girl loves to sit in her foster mom’s lap, play with other dogs and her toys. She does well in her dog wheelchair, which will come with her when she is adopted.
The MisFits Dog Rescue is looking for a family that lives in Colorado. They do not adopt dogs out-of-state. They also prefer a family without small children.
