Everyone Passed By This Desperate Dog, But Then One Girl Changed His Life…
She says, “The weird thing [..] despite all the neglect he was so desperate for human contact. . . He was still so sweet and begging for me to pet him.”
The vet confirmed, due to a broken back he was paralysed in his hind legs. She contacted local shelters for his care, but none could take him, so Penman set up a GoFundMe campaign to fly Leo back to Canada to get the “vet care he needed.”
Leo arrived in Canada, meanwhile donations from Penman’s GoFundMe page poured in and he received the veterinary attention he needed. Next came a search for his new home.
Alongside the successful GoFundMe page, a “You Caring” foundation was set up to raise money for Leo’s future expenses, such as vet bills.
A woman saw Leo’s Facebook page, and he now happily has found a home with Jamie Smith in Sarnia, Ontario.
Leo still has the same exuberance he had that fateful day on the beach, and now looks very content in his new wheelchair!
