Spencer is a bulldog who has been paralyzed since he was a puppy. It's not clear what happened to Spencer to cause the paralyzed legs, but his veterinarian suspects he was dropped or abused as a newborn.
Spencer was dropped on the doorstep of Linda Heinz, who took him in and has raised him. He's a sweet dog who has never been able to explore, play or even go on a walk. He's always at Linda's feet whining for her to pick him up and take her places. Linda reached out to Westcoast Brace & Limb, who normally works with combat veterans and children to create custom artificial limbs. They worked to create braces for Spencer. The results are amazing!
Watch this completely touching video and witness Spencer taking his first steps, and then walking with his brother Porkchop. I guarantee it will bring some joy to your day.
