Cara is one of the sweetest yet most determined dogs you could ever wish to meet. She was born in one of our sanctuaries to a dog who we were told was already spayed—along with eight tiny siblings. Despite being vaccinated, she contracted distemper when she was just four months old, and over time she became completely paralyzed as a result. But we refused to put her to sleep immediately, deciding to see if her condition might improve. Against all the odds, it did, and Cara very slowly regained her ability to walk—albeit with a rather strange gait.
Because Cara became so dependent and attached while she was recovering, Judy decided it would be cruel to adopt her out to another family, and so she has become a permanent fixture at ACT. She lives in Sean and Judy’s home and is already planning some great photos and videos to share with you if you sponsor her.
