A puppy who was attacked by stray dogs, leaving both her hind legs permanently paralysed, has been given a better life after being rescued by exiled Tibetan monks and gifted a dog wheelchair.
Tashi has lived with the monks in the Sera monastery in India since the attack but despite the challenges she faces, she is still full of energy. As a puppy she often ran around, dragging her hind legs behind her and it was clear as grew that she would need additional support. Two months ago her luck changed, when HandicappedPets.com learned of her rescue. The US company who specialise in pet products to help aging, disabled and injured pets, donated a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair to improve Tashi’s mobility and help her enjoy a better quality of life.
When the wheelchair arrived, the monks enlisted the help of local children to assemble it before letting Tashi have her first “ride”. The monks wrote to HandicappedPets.com to say, “She now has a new life of walking and playing around. She loves it.”
