Former Police Dog Keeps on Rolling after a 10-Year Career - K-9 Koal Regains Mobility with Walkin' Wheels for Handicapped Pets
Nashua, New Hampshire (June 11, 2010) - After serving as a patrol and narcotics K-9 with the Fairfax County, Virginia police department for ten years, Koal was looking forward to retirement with his partner Jose´ Arango. K-9 Koal is a 12-year old East European Shepherd who successfully located and captured numerous criminals and made several drug finds during his law enforcement career.
When a surgical attempt to restore Koal's mobility proved unsuccessful and further surgery was not without risk, the retired K-9 discovered the mobility miracle of the Walkin' Wheels for Handicapped Pets dog wheelchair.
Koal had always been an extremely active dog who traveled everywhere with his partner both on the job and while off duty. So, the sudden loss of mobility was both physically and mentally challenging for Koal.
When back surgery proved unsuccessful and additional surgery was too risky, Koal's owner and former handler Jose´ Arango, a retired police officer, found a solution with the Walkin' Wheels for Handicapped Pets.
"Koal is quite the celebrity in his Walkin' Wheels cart. He's a much happier dog, and we're so grateful," Arango commented.
