Dawson gets his Wheels!
Dawson came into rescue after an investigator from a shelter in Ohio asked for help for Dawson. He had been injured while with his former owner and was paralysed. Dawson deperately needed to be moved to a rescue fosterhome. Our Ethel and Bill stepped up to take Dawson in, and with the help of the whole RTRC group Dawson made his way to Canada and into his loving fosterhome.
Dawson received vet care here in Canada, he was examined and xrayed, and sent to an orthopedic specialist in Ottawa. Here it was determined that little Dawson only had a 5% chance of walking again, if his injury had been taken in for treatment by his former owner at the time of the injury, Dawson likely would have walked again, but at this point was too late.
The good news is little Dawson is a spirited and happy lil' guy and has learned to use little scooch bags that his foster parents have gotten for him. He has a custom wheelchair in the works, and thanks to kind donations little Dawson has supplies and bedding to help him be comfortable.
Dawson is available for adoption to a special family who would love to have his wonderful spirit bring joy to their home. Dawson's fosterparents report that he is an exceptional little boy and does very well in his volunteer job of offering comfort therapy in hospitals.
