ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI (January 10, 2023) – On a cold February night, three pit bull puppies who appeared to have neurological conditions were found dumped in a box in an alleyway in St. Louis, MO, at just six weeks old. Due to their condition, the puppies spent several weeks at the Stray Rescue of St. Louis vet clinic seeking medical attention for their malnutrition and abrasions. Once healed, all three siblings found foster homes, two of them eventually finding their forever homes. But now, just under a year later, one last pup named Sanctuary is left searching for his happy ending.
Sanctuary has Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), which means he has no control over his motor functions. CH causes him to have a wobbly and unbalanced stance. To stand and walk, Sanctuary needs the assistance of his Full Support Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair to get around throughout the day.
His foster mom, Clare, says, “His wheelchair has made the biggest difference in his life. It has helped him physically, mentally, and emotionally. He can run, walk, eat, drink, and go to the bathroom on his own.”
Sanctuary is a year old, receives physical therapy regularly, and attends puppy classes for socialization. Clare says, “Sanctuary is sweet, smart, and silly. He loves his lamb chop toys and holding a ball in his mouth while running in the backyard in his wheelchair.”
Sanctuary’s foster family is searching for someone who can love him unconditionally and provide him with a lifestyle that caters to his special needs.
