Abused Great Pyrenees ready for forever home

Link came to the Great Pyrenees Rescue of Oklahoma as an owner surrender last May. Abused and neglected, nobody is quite sure what he experienced in his early life or how he was injured.

A lower back injury caused a partial paralysis, his left rear leg was broken in two places and his right rear leg was mangled. Surgery repaired the left leg, the right leg was amputated.

To say both Link, who will be a year old this month, and his rescuers are determined is an understatement. After weekly therapy and receiving a new set of wheels to get around, Link is finally link new wheels 2ready to find his forever family.

Link is a typical happy go lucky adolescent pup that loves to play with other dogs, loves toys, enjoys playing outdoors and lounging in the yard,” said Deanne McNabb, Link’s foster and president of GPRO via email. “It’s hard to go out to the front yard without gathering a crowd for neighbor kids and even parents. His doctors and therapist routinely remark of his sweet temperament and trust of people through everything he’s been through.”

Deanne describes him as a character, always looking to play and wrestle.

“Given his limited mobility he has come up with his own games, one his favorites is fetch, but you’re doing the fetching,” she said.

Some of the special needs a potential adopting family will need to consider are a living space with no or few stairs and rugs on slick surfaces, extra supplies such as an orthopedic dog bed, potty pads and diapers. He will be sent to his forever home with all of his current supplies including his new wheelchair which adjusts in height and width to two additional sizes.

He will also need an adopter who is physically able to support him standing and walking with his rear harness and helping him in and out of his wheelchair.

Link is currently being fostered in the Tulsa area. His adoption application can be downloaded from at www.wix.com/gprofok/gpr or from the group’s Facebook page Great Pyrenees Rescue of Oklahoma. You can watch a video about him here.

Meet and greet visits are welcomed at the foster home once the application is approved. Link’s Tulsa therapy vet is happy to provide a consultation visit to go over his exercises, the proper ways to physically assist him, wheelchair use and more.

Fact and fiction on the internet

If you are on any form of social media, you probably noticed a blog post about the dangers of giving dogs ice water that was shared by well-meaning dog lovers everywhere. And shortly after, a myriad of posts and articles debunking the first post were shared.

It always amazes me how quick people are to believe the things they read on the internet without verifying the information with another source. Scarier, is how quickly people are to share inaccurate info with their friends and continue the cycle.

I purposely have not included links to any of the above mentioned blogs or articles because I have no interest in further spreading that information. While the internet is great for finding surface level info, the best source of information regarding your furbaby’s health is their veterinarian.

Not sure if icewater is right for your dog? Wondering what that weird rash is on your dog’s belly? Need advice on getting your cat to stop peeing on your rug?

The internet, and social media especially, can be a great place to start gathering info, however a simple visit with your veterinarian will give you information tailored to your pet.

Along the same lines, I always cringe when I stumble upon pet websites formatted as ‘ask a veterinarian’. Inevitably, questions are asked that just can’t be answered without seeing the pet in person and the final response is usually take your animal to the vet.

Let’s leave the internet for the silly pet videos and use common sense when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our babies.

Cattios, a perfect compromise

My dogs and I have been taking advantage of the early spring-like weather we have had recently. Hopefully, it won’t get too cold again before the real spring weather arrives.

Trying to be nice, I opened quite a few windows for my cats. They are strictly indoor cats and they love sitting in open windows. Although, watching them sit inside while we were all playing outside felt a little mean. Like we were taunting them with what they can’t have — the freedom to run and play outside.

I know several people who have built what is essentially a cat run for their feline companions and it seems like the perfect compromise to keeping your animal safe while allowing them the chance to be outside.

So I have decided a ‘cattio’ is going to be my big project this spring. I have been searching Pinterest for all of the best ideas and there are a ton.

I can’t wait to get started and I know my cats are going to love me for it. I’m sure there are some who might think it’s a little over the top to go to such trouble for a pet’s happiness, but most of my friends already know I’m a crazy cat lady at heart.

So now it’s your turn to share, what have you done for your pet that others mind find a little extreme? Share in the comments below.
