Our sweet, handsome miracle boy Arthur is now two years old – and he continues to excel in things he shouldn’t even be able to do. Arthur came from a breeder who realized when Arthur was born that something wasn’t quite right, and he cared enough to reach out to Satchel’s rather than put him down. We accepted the challenge.
An MRI revealed that Arthur was born with no cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls all fine motor movement. The neurologist who did the MRI had never experienced it before. Medically, there was nothing he could offer. All Arthur should be able to do is flail, but he doesn’t seem to know that, so after a few sessions in a swimming pool, he started to swim. We got him a wheelchair – and with the aid of that, he started to walk.
Now, he needs someone who can make him a bigger part of their life; a home where he can be the center of attention and where someone has the time to take him to the next level, beyond his wheelchair. Someone who understands that miracles happen every day and that every day brings him closer to his next miracle. Arthur is a really nice dog; he’s lived in harmony with a pet rabbit, and he currently adores and is loved by his six canine companions. He is housebroken and can eat and drink on his own.
Do you think the two of you could walk together? If so, for an appointment to meet him, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, and an adoption counselor will be in touch.
