Marnie is a 8 year old Havanese mix that is 13 lbs. Her early life must have been a tough one which has left her paralyzed in her back legs. We suspect due to some trauma in her younger life.

Marnie doesn’t know that she’s a broken dog, who was brought to the shelter and left there to live out her life. he does wear diapers. She’s a happy girl who runs and walks with joy and enthusiasm!

In her foster home she is learning to master her wheelchair, for easier mobility, but will gladly walk around using the strength of her front legs.
Marnie has been evaluated at LSU vet school and our local vet and is in otherwise good health. She’s up to date on all vaccines and Hw negative.

Marnie would love to be your constant companion… her needs are very few and her love is boundless.

This dog is available unless it is marked as Pending, meaning Pending Adoption. This dog is in foster care locally, ONLY if Maine or New Hampshire is listed next to the dogs name; otherwise, the dog is still waiting with our partner rescue for an adoption or foster home in New England.
