Greensboro, N.C. -- Porsche is a Shih Tzu mix and she is around 1 year old. She came to the Fort Rescue about a month ago from Stokes County Shelter. She had been hit by a car and then abandoned by her "owner" when they moved out and left her behind. Unable to use her back legs at all due to a shattered pelvis, she had been dragging her back legs around for a month before she was picked up by animal control. The Fort Rescue had originally been told she was paralyzed, but when they got her she was wagging her tail. A vet confirmed that she did in fact have feeling in her hind legs, but was unable to use them at the time due to her injuries. The Fort Rescue rigged up a sling to help her get around and have been nothing short of amazed at the progress she has made in the past month! They have even seen her stand on her own for a few seconds at a time! All very promising for her to make a full recovery.
