Ladies and gentlemen, meet Quinn! This gal on wheels has stolen all of our hearts and is the sweetest little lady you’ll ever meet. We are unsure what caused her paralysis…she came from a place of neglect: living outside in the dirt, with no special care. But let us tell you – she is kind, brave, resilient, has great potential with kiddos and loves ALL humans. Quinn is a playful, bubbly, affectionate girl who loves to sunbathe and receive booty scratches.
Quinn arrived in our care due to neglect from her previous owner. After some much needed medical attention, Quinn was determined to have paralysis of her hind end with minimal motor function; origin unknown. Her hind end motor function has been improving greatly since under our care, she is able to stand on her own and take a few steps without assistance for short periods of time.
Quinn has a custom wheelchair which she uses with ease and is always excited to zoom around. We believe she has minimal control of her bladder, able to go outside to potty but will urinate with pressure on her abdomen. Quinn arrived with sores on her hind legs/paws but these have also improved.
Quinn is available for adoption through our shelter but unfortunately has had no interest for the past 6 months. Her routine at CHS keeps her happy and healthy but the limited space we have to offer her is not conducive for longevity. We are hoping to find a rescue, sanctuary, foster family, or adoptive home that will be able to offer her a fulfilling life.
As you can imagine, caring for a pup in a wheelchair will take some extra patience and TLC. Quinn needs:
– managing her partial paralysis, little use of her hind legs
– daily special need care, cleaning sores, physical therapy, cleaning booty
– incontinent, little to no control of her bladder or defecation
– no kitty cats please
– strength to lift 50+ lbs
If you think you’re that magical, special human that can give Quinn the loving forever home that she deserves, give us a call at 231-946-5116 to meet her. Get ready to fall in love!
