I am the proud mommy of a 2 yr old paralyzed Blue and White Pit Bull named Indigo. We were his foster parents first , but he really grew on us. A family wanted to adopt him , but after three days backed out becose of Indigos special needs. (He is incontinent and wears diapers and uses a wheelchair, etc like a paralyzed human.) My family decided we needed to adopt him ourselves , because we didnt want to put Indy through a series of failed adoptions.

Indigo was abused and beaten with a shovel and kicked by his former owners, breaking his spine and causing his paralysis. He was very sick when we got him , but now he is healthy and getting around great. We are planning on using him in education programs for children , teaching kindness to animals , and we plan on having him advocate to change laws regarding animal abuse. He is also going to be a breed advocate and a spokesdog for Ring Dog Rescue , the rescue that saved him from euthanasia.

Here is my famous new son Indigo The Wheeled Terrier.

Indigo is our 7th adopted dog , all of our dogs sadly came from similar situations, we are hard core animal rescuers. I wish I didnt have to DO my job, because all animals had good homes.

There is an AMAZING company in Mass, called Eddies Wheels for pets, they custom make these wheeled carts for all kinds of animals with mobility issues. Without them , Indy wouldnt be able to rock and roll , we are so grateful to them because they DONATED Indys cart to him , because of his abuse situation, generally one costs $500.
