Dachsie Lance, from Miami, had a spinal condition that caused him to lose function in his back legs. Although he could not be helped through surgery, the veterinarians at the university suggested Lance get a doggie wheelchair and instructed his owner, Claudia Machado, how to care for him.
When he isn’t chasing his Frisbee, Lance today works as a certified therapy dog at Miami Children’s Hospital and other medical facilities. Read on for the heartwarming details.
Lance sounds like a canine Helen Keller to the Daily Dachshund and Dog News. Bravo, little guy!
