WEELO is a special jack russell/dachshund mix. She was brought into the shelter from one of the local trailer parks by people who claimed that she just "came up" dragging her backend. They said she played fetch and loved kids. Funny they knew all that...

She entered the shelter with both back legs spread out, unable to use them. But her sweet outgoing personality, licking the skin off anyone giving her some attention, soon won the hearts of everyone. Animal Control Officer Tracy Thompson ordered her a doggy wheelchair -- donated compliments of Southern Hope Humane Society.

WEELO is learning to work the wheelchair and doing a great job. The instruction on the wheelchair says you have to get the dog used to the chair slowly so as not to frighten her. That was not a problem! WEELO was like "strap me in I'm ready to go!" She sat very still and allowed them to put her into the chair, and then she was off to the races!

She can move around freely on smooth surface or grass without her chair, but she'll need a very special adopter because she cannot control when she goes potty. She gladly wears the towel diaper they put on her. She's just so accommodating and tolerant -- a real pleaser. If you would like to rescue or adopt WEELO contact Pat Hopper or Tracy Thompson.
