Sidewalk Specials found me on their last Steri Drive, my owner said my legs had stopped working over a month ago- I’d been pushing myself round the township ever since! He asked Sidewalk Specials to put me to sleep- I guess he just couldn’t watch me struggling anymore…
When his owner heard that Sidewalk Specials was in town, he asked if they could put him to sleep to put him out of his misery.
This year you’ve not only helped Sidewalk Specials save me, you’ve got 289 dogs adopted!! You’ve funded 670 free township sterilisations!! Do you even realise how much happiness you’ve brought and how much suffering you’ve prevented?!
Sidewalk Specials decided to give him a second chance and help him out. They knew they couldn’t euthanize this sweet dog without trying to help him first. The vets at Vet Point said with a lot of rehab, there was a slim chance that Speedy would be OK, and it was a chance that rescuers were willing to take.
After a lot of therapy and rehab, Speedy began walking on his own! He was still very shaky, but he was slowly but surely moving his front legs again. He continued water therapy, along with physio, and a month later, he was not only walking around, but running!
Speedy has since been adopted into a loving forever home! He was so close to being euthanized, but staff at Sidewalk Specials didn’t have the heart to put him to sleep and refused to give up on him. Now Speedy is happier than ever, and his name surely suits him! Speedy definitely got his Christmas miracle!
