Special Needs: Paralysis in the back legs

Rescue Date: January 2024


Imagine a scene of chilling winds, biting cold and snow swirling around a paralyzed dog. Huddled amidst the rubbish, shivering, hungry and utterly alone, is Harley. We found him at a landfill, desperately trying to find food and shelter in the midst of a harsh winter.

Unfortunately, Harley wasn't the only one suffering at this site. Faced with over 30 abandoned dogs, we knew we couldn't help them all alone. Thankfully, another local rescue group joined forces with us, taking in the healthier dogs while Harley and another special needs dog, Jasper, came into our care.

Harley underwent assessment and x-rays at the vet's. Regrettably, his back legs were irreparable, leading the vet to recommend amputation. After consulting with UK vets, we've decided to hold off on any procedures for now. It’s a miracle that he has survived as long as he did in his condition. We believe he was hit by a car and left untreated leading to his paralysis.

Harley is paralysed in his back legs, which adds to the challenges he faces. However, despite this, he remains a spirited and loving dog. His disability doesn't define him and he still has so much love to give.

Currently, Harley is staying in a dog house within someone's garden at least free from the anxieties of the landfill site. Turkey offers no long-term solution for Harley. Finding a loving home there is near impossible.

We are looking for a special individual or family who can provide Harley with the love, care and attention he deserves. Harley needs a home where his unique needs can be met, where he can receive the support and assistance he requires to thrive. While his physical limitations may require some adjustments, Harley's capacity for love and companionship knows no bounds.

If you are interested in opening your heart and home to Harley, please consider adoption. Your kindness and compassion can make all the difference in Harley's life, giving him the chance to experience the love and happiness every dog deserves.
