One of the first things I do every morning is to check my email. I quickly peruse my inbox to see if there’s anything urgent I should reply to immediately. I learned long ago not to respond to the majority of my emails first thing in the morning – they don’t tend to be the most coherent emails! This morning, one particular email caught my eye.
The subject line showed that the Great Pyrenees Rescue of Oklahoma filled out a contact form here on It’s Dog or Nothing. I love working with rescues, so was eager for what they had to say.
The message stated that they have a wheelchair bound pup named Link in rescue and included links to his bio and a few videos. I immediately clicked through to both.
After reading Link’s bio, I was heartbroken. Link was abused by his former owner and suffered substantial injuries. Link suffered a lower back injury that caused him partial paralysis, the left rear leg broken in two places, and right rear leg was mangled beyond repair. The right rear leg had to be amputated.
I then watched the video and sobbed the entire way through. I started crying because I couldn’t believe someone could do that to such an innocent animal. Then I cried because I was blown away by how resilient Link is. Animals are truly amazing.
Even through all the horror he’s been through at such a young age, Link is just the happiest boy. While he’s doing great in his foster home, Link really needs a place to call his own – his furever home.
Friends, let’s help find Link is furever home. If you think you could be that home or know someone that could be, please contact the rescue. If not, please share his story so we can get Link home <3
