Wheelchair Donated To Deaf, Abused Dog!

This sad story has a very happy ending!

A dog — estimated to be about 14 years old — was found deaf and starving in a parking lot when a decent human being called FIDO, the Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside, for help. The poor thing was COVERED in fleas!

Here's what FIDO said about the poor pup:

“He was clearly malnourished and extremely dehydrated. He had no energy, was lethargic and couldn’t even walk or lift his head. We didn’t want to take the animal someplace where he’d be put down."

Instead, things got MUCH better for the pooch — and he found a home with Susan Niehoff of Irvington. She's a true hero! Here's what she said:

“I just loved him, and I hadn’t even seen him yet. He just looked like a Norman, so that’s what I named him. He really didn’t want anybody touching him."

Norman ended up warming up, though, but he wasn't out of the woods yet: Norman’s legs were giving out due to arthritis.

Luckily, he was donated a doggy wheelchair, which can run upwards of $300. Which means that someone out there was willing to help out a dog that many would see too old for the effort!

That warms our hearts!

Now, Norman is spending the remaining years of his life happy — and mobile!

    The dog needs to be put on glycoflex 3. Both my dogs have bad arthritis. My 15 year old poms hind legs were giving out I put him on this and he can jump around like a puppy now. A vet suggested this to me.

    How absolutely wonderful! Grateful that this dog will get to live out the rest of his years being "pampered" and loved! God Bless everyone involved with saving Norman's life! :)

    The Lord has a special plan for those who were cruel to animals.

    I respect the kind souls who do this work immensely. Imagine giving a handful of happy years at the end to a dog who had a shit life. Well done. I have two older shelter dogs; one (4 yrs) was used as a breeder and I don't feel had ever been out of her cage. Even her posture was bent. She's come so far, her spine is normalizing, and even exhibits happy sometimes now. The other had FIVE owners and I can't figure that out. She is the perfect dog, and happy and game in perpetuity.
