We do our best to protect the little guys but despite our best efforts, injury or illness can leave a puppy disabled. There's no need to give up on him, though. Puppies don't know any better than to keep on keepin' on.
Don't discount those handicapped or "other-abled" pups at the adoption event, either! Special needs fur kids and less adoptable pups have just as much love to give, and sometimes more. Adopting these little ones can be incredibly rewarding, even if they are blind or perhaps they can't hear, or are missing a leg.
Here's a brand new article about adopting disabled puppies--they're available all year long.
In fact, Petfinder.com this week promotes LESS ADOPTABLE PET WEEK and spotlights some awesome candidates for you to adopt (including older dogs and even cats).
