Fostering a puppy with a disability is not something that most people would do. Roni is different; she is a kind person who has a lot to give for animals. She provided foster care for a puppy who had a deformity.
Tadpole is a pit bull puppy who can’t walk properly. His front legs were wide apart, and he made motions like he was swimming on the ground. A veterinarian had deemed Tadpole as unsuitable for surgery.
Instead of surgery, Tadpole got a cast on to help straighten out his joints. He was very determined to find a way to walk while wearing them. Slowly but surely, his elbows got closer to each other.
Tadpole was soon able to walk and jump with fewer problems than before. He was also able to climb up and down the stairs. Small acts like that would stack up and build his overall confidence.
Roni was very happy to see every progress that the puppy made. She got attached to him, and they have formed a special bond. Roni has three dogs, and she plans to keep it that way so she can continue to foster. The other dogs helped Tadpole a lot when it comes to learning socialization.
Roni got very emotional when it was time for Tadpole to get adopted. She delivered him to his new family. She knew the family who adopted Tadpole, so Roni was confident that the puppy would live a good life.
Tadpole’s new family also has another dog. That dog only has one eye. In a way, there was another dog who had a disability, and perhaps Tadpole will connect with him in a significant way.
Tadpole behaved well when meeting his new family. The other pets also welcome him. Roni was satisfied with the experience, and she will continue to foster more dogs that need a home.
