There are dogs out there who were born under unfortunate conditions. These dogs require an owner who is willing to go the extra mile to take care of them. One of them is a husky named Floppy.
Floppy was different from his siblings because he was the only one who couldn’t walk properly. He would kick a lot and flail on the ground but could never stand up. He could only move by propelling himself.
Some people showed interest in Floppy when he was a puppy. However, they never ended up adopting him. That was until a kind man named Chad volunteered to take care of him.
Floppy always showed special interest in stairs. He loves trying to climb them, even if it takes a while. He doesn’t want Chad to help him or pull him up. That’s why whenever he receives help, he stops climbing.
When Floppy first climbed up a set of stairs by himself, Chad became emotional. It was a moment worthy of celebration. For Floppy, he sees it as just another fun hobby, not a challenge.
Floppy was able to go on long walks without falling down. The way he walks remains wobbly, but it’s a far cry from his past self. He enjoys many outdoor activities, especially when there are cows nearby, which fascinates him a lot.
Chad found it satisfying to see Floppy’s growth. He started as a puppy that couldn’t move. Then, he eventually became a dog who was living a fulfilling life.
Floppy changed the way Chad views regular activities. He became more grateful that he can do and enjoy them. This newfound appreciation for simple things is something common for people who have dogs with disabilities.
Chad sets a great example for a lot of people. Anyone who can afford to take care of a disabled dog should do so. They bring a different and more down-to-earth perspective to someone’s life.
