Bueller was born with congenital defects causing significant issues including paralysis, writes ilovemydogsomuch
He could not walk and the breeder deemed him useless and unworthy of life. The breeder thankfully opted to bring him to a shelter instead of euthanizing him. He was handed over in a cardboard box. The breeder walked away with no remorse whatsoever.
These congenital defects are caused by irresponsible breeding. Yet the man turned his back on the puppy. But shelter volunteers took Bueller in hoping they could help him. The vet that volunteers at the shelter agreed that Bueller had a zest for life. The puppy wanted to live so they would do their part to help him.
Bueller needed physical therapy in order to strengthen his muscles. Hydrotherapy is a terrific option! And the puppy loved every minute. He pumped his little legs as best as he could. To see Bueller happily splashing around made everyone smile.
The volunteers also worked with a wheelchair to get him used to navigating around. He was always a determined little guy, barking happily as he tried to get to the treats set out for him. But no matter how determined Bueller was, his future was uncertain. That was until Bueller proved that with faith and love, anything is possible.
While Bueller’s new human friends had confidence in the little puppy, they weren’t prepared for what happened next! Bueller’s muscle memory was incredibly impressive. Way before the vet was certain he’d walk, the little determined puppy taught himself how to sit up and stand. He used whatever he could find around him to push his little body up. Everyone was totally floored.
