Suki was a pitiful homeless puppy that was rescued and sent to a local shelter by animal control. And Andre, a dog enthusiast, was passionate about fostering dogs and couldn’t help himself from fostering Suki when he met the dog.
Andre traveled from Germany for an entire day to pick up the puppy. Suki disliked being touched and moved her back legs gently away from her foster father.
The man was well aware that he needed to be extra patient with Suki, given her ordeal and her past. The vet that checked on Suki surmised that the dog had been struck, resulting in her spinal injuries and inability to walk or move her back legs.
Suki remained in one area only on her first day at her new home. She was clearly anxious about being in a new environment.
Andre lavished Suki with affection, care, and goodies, and fortunately, Suki quickly warmed up to her foster father.
Suki gradually gained confidence around people and even allowed them to pet her head. Despite her inability to walk or run alongside other dogs, Suki always wore a smile.
Andre took Suki and visited the veterinarian, who determined that an operation was extremely risky for Suki. With that information, Andre chose to purchase a wheelchair for Suki instead.
Suki was initially perplexed when she was strapped onto the wheelchair. It took a few moments for her to realize what the contraption was for, but once she figured out how to run with it, she was unstoppable.
Suki’s ability to run and play with other dogs marked a great moment in terms of her progress. She also improved her social skills, which definitely increased her confidence.
It wasn’t long before a nice family expressed interest in adopting Suki. They recognized Suki’s specific needs and adored her despite her eccentricities.
Suki is now living the life she truly deserves, and Andre is overjoyed to be a part of it.
