A volunteer writes: This little guy defines ‘just do it’. He has medical issues, he walks with a tilt, has a hard time lifting his head, has some lumps on his body, but his tail wags, he loves to go for a walk, and he’s just not going to let a little thing like some medical problems slow him down. His tail wagged as we started out walk, he went potty right away, the vet told me he eats like a champ and he’s the true definition of ‘where there’s a will there’s a way’. He loved cuddling in my arms, and getting some love from other staff. When big dogs came near he had no reaction to them, just happy to share his space with any two legged or four legged creature. I fell in love with his spunk, his softness, his ability to not let anything get him down. When I put him back in his kennel, he drank some water and patiently waited for his dinner. If I could put him in my pocket and take him home I would. He won my heart big time. He’ll win yours too.
