AMHERST, NH (March 22, 2017) – The Manitoba puppy who became disabled after being hit by a car in January, as reported in the Metro News, is ready for a forever home! The puppy, Gizzy, was rescued by Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue after the car accident.
The Rescue worked with veterinarians at Fort Garry Veterinary Hospital in Winnipeg, where it was necessary to amputate one of the pup’s rear legs. Gizzy suffered a heart attack during his leg amputation, leaving him blind. Handicapped Pets Canada then donated an adjustable Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair to him so that he can be mobile again.Manitoba Mutts Rescue says, “Gizzy has been cleared by the vet and is now available for adoption!”
Gizzy was given a second chance at life by this great team effort, and he is now ready to be adopted by a family who will love and welcome him. To see a video of Gizzy’s journey and how he gets around in his new Walkin’ Wheels, go here: https://vimeo.com/208171686.
