Meant To Be

Little Willie was left in a cardboard box by a dumpster at the back of our property. His back legs were paralyzed but his sweet spirit was not broken and he quickly touched our hearts. After several weeks of TLC, meds and therapy, he started to wag his tail and to regain some use of one leg. Then, he got his very own set of wheels, kindly donated by the good folks at For Paws Hospice, and was zipping around the shelter in no time.

After spending nearly a month with us recovering and gaining strength, a chance meeting with a Dachshund lover gave him the greatest Holiday gift- a forever home. Watch the coverage below to see his amazing story!
