Detroit dog gets set of wheels to help her recover after being hit by car
DETROIT – Last month Detroit Animal Care and Control got a call about a puppy that was wedged underneath a car. They thought the dog may never walk again, but now they’re optimistic about the puppy making a full recovery because it has a new set of wheels. “She was unable to use her back legs and she was in quite a bit of pain,” Dr. Patricia Bigwood said. Detroit Animal Care and Control knew they needed to get the dog a set of wheels if she was ever going to move like a dog again. Nibbles is still going through her recovery process but she will be up for adoption over the next couple of months.
