A nother young pup struck by a vehicle, poor Pengu was in a sorry state when rescued and rushed to our clinic. With a severe spinal injury, she struggled to move around and quickly grew frustrated with her situation. However, with lots of support from us and dogged determination on her part (pardon the pun!), Pengu grew stronger, and after her first go in the walking wheels, there was no stopping her…literally! Racing around the shelter at breakneck speed in search of treats and/or cuddles, this determined, loving and playful pooch never feels sorry for herself and wherever there is fun to be had, that’s where you’ll find her!
Pengu has a sponsor, and as she is handicapped, she will likely remain with us for the long-term. Dogs with disabilities can make wonderful pets, and Pengu would be no exception, but they do require an extra level of care and commitment that many are unable to give.
All animals adopted from HAS are or will be sterilised for free at the ABC and Rescue Centre. It is mandatory and entirely free of cost for the adopter. Pengu has been sterilised.
