When Sarah Griffiths (a 25-year-old young lady) decided to get a miniature dachshund, she was completely aware of the fact that this breed is quite susceptible to back issues mainly because of their short legs and elongated bodies. So, when this precious puppy was brought into her home, it was a difficult situation for Sarah Griffiths. She was quite perplexed that if she should euthanize her new pet or take care of a disabled dog. Fortunately for this puppy, the kind-hearted, caring, and generous mom took a good care of her pet and helped the puppy to get back her mobility.
The puppy was diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease, a dreadful disease that causes discs to press on the nerves (running through the spinal cord). After being diagnosed with this disease, the puppy gradually stopped walking. She would take only a few steps and encountered obstacles while she was trying to walk. In fact, the dog's condition became so severe that she was unable to go to the toilet by herself. The pet owner, Sarah Griffiths decided to opt for a medical surgery. However, there were only 50% chances of getting properly cured. Plus, it will have resulted in lots of pain if her beloved pet undergoes a surgery.
Rather than undergoing surgery and medical procedures, she decided to put her puppy on cage rest that did not necessarily improve the pup's condition. But, her mom simply didn't give up. She tried osteopathy, physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, and laser therapy that eventually helped her precious pet to regain the ability to wag her tail.
The puppy can't still walk on her back two legs and she needs to wear diapers. But, she is now well-adjusted & definitely enjoying her life. She even has a custom-made wheelchair that helps her get around. And, her mommy and her other furry friends are taking a good care of this cute and sweet pup. Now, share this unique story of a precious pup and her kind-hearted mother with the animal lovers.
