Dumped on side of road unable to use her hind legs, pup keeps ‘smiling’



In Rialto, California, Charlie’s family dumped her on the side of the road. Who does that? It’s not like Charlie wandered off – the 12-year-old senior dog is unable to use her back legs. And so she was brought to the San Bernardino County Animal Shelter where volunteers have fallen in love with the pup who keeps smiling. Charlie at SBC 2

After having been examined by the vet staff at the shelter, the following notes have been posted:

“The boxer has a spinal injury that caused the paralysis of the back legs. She is not in pain at all, and is a very happy and friendly boy. She does not need surgery, but will need a home that can accommodate her special needs.”
