When we signed up with portlanddachshundrescue.org to be foster pawrents, we expected to host a little wiener dog every once in a while. Little did we know that we soon would be part of this equally sad and happy story:
"A woman in Sant Antonio, Texas, saw Percy fall off an overpass while he was trying to dodge traffic. She immediately called the police and kept him safe from passing cars until they arrived. Miraculously, Percy not only survived the fall, but still has movement and feeling in his back legs, as well as control of his bladder and bowels. He sat in the shelter for two weeks, terrified and hoping that each person who walked by his kennel was there to rescue him, but no one came. When Percy found himself on the euthanasia list, we answered the shelter's "last call" because he had no other rescue interest. We pulled him out of the shelter and recently performed spinal surgery, which we are deeming successful as he has since gained more function in his back legs and we hope he will make a full recovery."
Percy was quite a handful and every day had its challenges due to his special needs, but he is also a very special dog, kind and goofy and full of life. So we felt very lucky to be part of his journey for a while, nurse him back to health and help finding him a home.
