Sophie’s Miracle

WestsideGSRescue·184 videos

5-month-old Sophie, our miracle girl, after 3 weeks of physical therapy, is supporting her own weight, and beginning to walk on her own! http://sheprescue.org | http://facebook.com/WGSRescue

Even though she’s had remarkable results from physical therapy, the doctors all now agree that she will need surgery to remove the mass from her spine in order make a complete recovery. Please donate to help us pay for Sophie’s treatment: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr…

Sophie was abandoned at a local high-kill animal shelter and slated for immediate euthanasia because she couldn’t walk. Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles saved her not a minute too soon. Our vets discovered a mass on her spine in the neck area. She has been undergoing physical therapy (including hydrotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and laser therapy) to build her strength and coordination.

We are so encouraged and excited to see her rapid progress, because prior to this, she wasn’t able to even support her weight at all. We are hopeful that she will eventually regain the use of all 4 legs and run and play the way any puppy should. Please help us continue to give Sophie the love and support she needs to make a full recovery.

Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles is a non profit 501(c)3, no kill rescue committed to saving all types of German Shepherd Dogs from high kill shelters and adopting them to loving, qualified homes. Sophie is just one of many dogs that Westside has saved.

Westside German Shepherd Rescue recently lost its major source of charitable funding, and is struggling to survive. We depend entirely on the donations of caring animal lovers like you. Please visit http://sheprescue.org to see how you can help.
