A highly affectionate disabled dog is looking for a new home after she was found disabled and pregnant.
The two-year-old has been at Flori’s Friends Rescue in Kent, a rescue centre for abused and neglected pets operating a strict “no-kill” policy, for the last two months
Autumn, whose exact breed is unknown, was found crawling the streets paralysed and pregnant.
Her spine was broken and the rescue centre amputated her back legs to give her the freedom to move around on her front two legs and stop getting sores.
She now has a custom wheelchair worth £800, which will she will take to her new home at no cost to new owners.
It means she can easily navigate all terrains and can run for miles and still needs to be walked like any other dog.
However, due to her spinal break she is incontinent, which is common among disabled dogs so she wears nappies around the house which need changing three times a day.
The Flori’s Friends Rescue website says: “This is a very special girl, who has endured so much pain and really does deserve a forever family of her own.
“Autumn has come out the other end smiling and happy, and a joy to be around, anyone adopting Autumn will be very lucky.”
She loves humans and other dogs but should be placed in a home with children over seven years of age only.
TeamDogs is a community for dog lovers who want to get the most out of their relationship with their best pal.
Although she is easy to care for, not dissimilar to a non disabled dog, she cannot be left alone with a dirty nappy and needs someone to be home a lot of the time.
