Hi everybody! Melody here, but you can call me 'Hot Wheels'! Yeah, I was the Leader Of The Pack until that fateful night on Deadman's Curve...I don't know exactly what happened, but when I woke up, I couldn't feel my legs! And my family and friends were nowhere to be found. I was on the skids for a while, living on the mean streets and learning how to survive on my own. Who knows how I'd have ended up if a nice lady hadn't seen me dragging myself across the street and said, "Oh no! Not on my watch! You're coming with me!" She got me to the folks at Releash, and a wonderful donor got me my pink wheels, and the rest is history! Now life is getting better every day. I am healthy and happy and I love my foster family and I really love my foster brothers and sisters! Sometimes men frighten me, but I warm up! The human puppies are okay too, as long as they're respectful and gentle. The most wonderful thing is my wheels! Oh, it feels so good to be able to run again! The only thing missing is a person to call my own!" Melody is a young (around 2) maltipoo who was found dragging herself across a street. Exams showed that her spinal injury is old and permanent. She is very proficient at getting around, and happily scoots all over the house and yard, but she loves her little pink wheels! Melody is merry and quiet, and loves cuddles but is happy to just be near her person. She does not need help with restroom things, but does need to wear a diaper. She is easy to keep clean and doesn't mind the ablutions needed to keep her skin from being irritated. Melody would love someone who can be home with her most of the time. She is also a great dog to take to work! She happily settles down behind her foster's work desk every day! Kind dogs would be great, as Melody enjoys her foster fur siblings (both small and large). Older, respectful children would probably be fine as well. Melody has met several children and accepted their pats quietly. Someone who has experience with wheelchair pups would be ideal, but honestly, "The Right Candidate Can Be Trained"! Her foster had no experience with paralyzed pets, and she has learned on the job, with no issues!
