HALIFAX HUMANE SOCIETY INC wrote -
Seal was an abandoned dog that ended up at the Halifax Humane Society without the use of his back two legs. An incredibly lovable dog always looking for attention or someone to play with, it is difficult to watch him get around by dragging his legs on the floor. Luckily Seal was adopted by two employees of the shelter and has a loving home. Seal still gets bruises and scrapes from the constant rubbing. The $1,200 will pay for a neurological visit as well as prosthetic or braces to help Seal get around more easily and pain free.
All funds raised that exceed the $1,200 cost of helping Seal will go into the Halifax Humane Society's Emergency Medical Fund. These funds go to low income owners who cannot afford to pay for a necessary medical procedure. The EMF also allows for the HHS to pay for veterinary care for sick and injured animals that come into our care.
Update on Seal:
Seal is now a year and a half old and within the last four months Seal has started to push off his back legs and stand partly up, knocked kneed and not for long but still quite remarkable. So his Dad and I had taken him for a new x ray and his spine has healed perfectly. So we asked his Vet what this could mean is it possible for him to walk? His doctor suggests a neurologist to see if he is a candidate for prosthetic. He knows of a Vet. in Jacksonville who has done this before. If there is enough nerve and muscle function for artificial legs he can get prosthetic legs and walk on all fours for the first time in his life. If not he is still loved and admired for his strength and the happiness he has brought to our home. We want to thank everyone who have helped up in the past. They have been a constant support system for Seal and us. Hopefully he will have his appointment in the next week or two and we will update as soon as we have any more information,
