Urgent: Help and adopter needed for paralysed puppy (Tang Wei Hao’s)

Updates at 10.18pm: Wei Hao has just informed us that he is located in Ipoh. We are currently still waiting for more information before proceeding to arrange for help.

The original post:

I received this email from Tang Wei Hao, 17, yesterday, after I returned from the Wesak Eve event. Since there was no photo, I could not blog until now.

I have advised Wei Hao to contact Lydia Telleson for a consultation. From our uninformed and untrained view, since the puppy is very young, the chances of healing may be good. Of course, this is still conjecture at this stage until we know more, especially on the extent of injury and whether the damage is reparable.

If you are able to help take over this puppy or help in any way possible, please contact Wei Hao directly at his email below:

My aunt will put it to sleep soon and i don want that to happen . Thank you very much
We shared Sunshine’s success story and here’s Wei Hao’s reply below. I remember when we brought Sunshine (with a transacted and broken spinal chord) to the vet’s, the vet said the only option was euthanasia and that there was no way Sunshine would ever walk again. But after about 10 weeks of physiotherapy and dedicated nursing, Sunshine walked and soon, regained all her ability to function normally. Today, Sunshine is as normal as any other dog: http://myanimalcare.org/2012/08/09/sunshine-courage-ready-for-adoption/ (Lydia adopted Sunshine).

To: Chan Kah Yein <chankahyein@gmail.com>Dear Kah Yein , 

Thanks for your advise . I already contact Lydia for help . I’m just waiting her reply now .
The dog still can walk in those photo i send to u . I hope this can help you . Thanks you very much for helping .

Let’s give this puppy a chance and work together to help save him.

I have contacted Lydia and am waiting to see what transpires if a consultation is possible. It appears that the puppy needs a new owner. Let’s do our best to find the puppy a home and someone who is willing to work on his healing and rehabilitation, whichever is needed.
