Georgie’s Wish – Artful Paws Rescue Pet of the Week

cocker-spaniel-christmas-hat-bowtieGeorgie came to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter after an accident had left him without the use of his back legs. But despite his limitations, this four year old Cocker Spaniel mix is full of love and energy!  He can get around without his wheels, but he does have a wheelchair for longer walks.  In fact, he is downright fast when zipping around in his chair!


Georgie was recently in a foster home and his foster mom said he is a great little guy who is not noisy, except when excited to say hello to new visitors because he absolutely loves people! He can be very cuddly and sleeps well through the night. Since Georgie is paralyzed, he can use some help expressing his bladder. He will go on his own, too, but he can’t really control that so he may just go whenever and wherever. It would be ideal if whoever adopts him gets into a routine of taking him outside to express his bladder there, to make things easier.

Thanks to the Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, Georgie has ten hydro-therapy sessions to help him improve the strength of his legs. While his prognosis is not clear, he does seem to be gaining some mobility in his legs. Georgia’s wish is to find a home where he will be loved and given the care he needs for his best chance at recovering. In return he will brighten your days with his loving and happy outlook on life!
