This ten-month-old Chihuahua/Corgi mix came to us with a spinal injury that prevents him from using his hind legs properly. He has responded to physical therapy sessions at Natural Veterinary Therapy (thank you Dr. Richmond) where he swims and uses the underwater treadmill like a champ! Staff members work with Bubba to perform daily exercises with the goal of strengthening his muscles and improving the function of his hind legs. He has made progress, but even if he always has mobility problems, Bubba can expect to live a long, happy and love-filled life.

    Bubba is healthy and happy, but his spinal injury left him with some urinary incontinence, which is easily handled by using a belly band to keep him (and the floor) clean and dry. This special little dog finds joy in each new day and deserves a chance to enjoy life as a cherished family member. For more information about meeting or adopting Bubba, please call AFRP at 831-333-0722 .

    A very generous supporter responded to our plea for a wheelchair cart for him, which arrived several weeks ago.  Everyone loves Bubba, but, nobody has offered him his forever home…yet!  He always wears the biggest smile at the Adoption Center and we know it is just a matter of time before someone falls in love with him.
