Getting some recommendations from a veterinarian, Sophia Vermeulen took some PVC pipe and rollerblade wheels and constructed Boo a cart and sling for his back legs.
Now, the little black pooch has become a fixture at Animal Services and can often be found in an inflatable pool with Vermeulen doing water therapy.
Considering Boo’s condition when he came to the shelter, seeing the two splashing and playing in the water is “something no one would have imagined a month ago,” Animal Services said in a release.
“The little guy has made amazing progress,” Animal Services director Kim Staton said. “All because of the passion of the staff and volunteers who work here.”
Vermeulen is currently fostering Boo.
