This is a great story about a handicapped street dog from Puerto Rico finding a new life in America:
When I met her, she took a few steps toward me and fell, and then never seemed to fully regain her footing. We thought it was due to her long trip, nervousness and new surroundings, but she didn’t improve when we got her home.
Watching her struggle to walk was heartbreaking, as she could only take a couple of steps and fall over. She couldn’t even get herself upright from the hardwood floors, dragging herself around the house instead.
While Hope did show signs of injury as the shelter in Puerto Rico suspected, our vet’s diagnosis was more dire: she had cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition that caused permanent disability. She would not get better.
