Local Paralyzed Rescue Pup Needs Help Finding Her Forever Home

AMHERST, NH (August 13, 2020) – The first time her foster mom saw Apache she was in a video on Facebook, she was horrified. Paralyzed, crawling on her hands and knees dragging her injured body across a hot Texas road, 10-month old Apache was scared. Bystanders watched her struggle, filmed her, but no one stepped in to help her. She had lived for at least 6 months ignoring the pain in her legs and back struggling to survive. Sandie knew she had to do whatever she could to save this young dog’s life.

Sandie brought Apache into her home in early January, but she knew the fight wasn’t over, this was only the beginning. “diagnosed with a generalized infection, severe diarrhea, flea and tick infestation and internal parasites, the first prognosis was to “let her go”… But this poor thing had been fighting alone for so many months that it was my duty to fight for her. With the help of amazing vets and rescuers, we did everything we could to restore Apache to health.”

Now Apache is healed and healthy, living with her foster family in Newbury, Massachusetts. She may be paralyzed, but that hasn’t stopped her from enjoying life to the fullest. She loves running in her Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair, Apache is active and energetic.

When the NH-based pet mobility company, Walkin’ Pets heard Apache’s story they were inspired to help Sandie tell Apache’s story and help find the perfect forever family.
