Double Amputee Rescue Dog Year-long Search for Home
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 20, 2022) – Bebe, a 2-year-old German shepherd/husky mix, has been at a San Diego shelter for over a year now, making her the longest dog in their care to date, with no applicants!
Bebe was left at a vet’s office in Guadalupe at just 3 months old, where she was stuffed inside of a crate for another 3 months of her life! Her back legs suffered the consequences of these unlivable conditions, and sadly, lost all the muscle mass and movement she once had. Thankfully, the Animal Pad (TAP) in San Diego came to her rescue, where she was offered shelter, love, proper medical care, and compassion.
However, due to her condition, veterinarians determined that bilateral amputation of her rear legs would be the best option for Bebe. Being the tough, resilient dog she was, Bebe did not let that obstacle stop her one bit.
“Did that get her down? No. Lack of two legs cannot extinguish the fire within her,” says TAP.
TAP got Bebe a new Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair to allow her to become more mobile, and be the fast and furious pup she was born to be. TAP says, “She can race you in those wheels . . . A 3-miler is NOTHING for this girl! When she sees her ‘chariot’ being brought out, she knows it’s time for some fun.”
Bebe is looking for a loving home that will be able to provide and give her the proper attention and care she needs, which include therapy and clean-ups (due to incontinence).
Bebe has a feisty, playful personality and says, “I do guarantee that a life with me will be full of the most amazing moments.” She is just as deserving of love, as any other dog. TAP is looking for a foster in the San Diego area, or an adopter anywhere that is a fit for her!
If you or someone you know would love to make this sweet girl part of your family, please consider filling out an adoption form on The Animal Pad’s website.
