Dumped on side of road unable to use her hind legs, pup keeps ‘smiling’

In Rialto, California, Charlie’s family dumped her on the side of the road. Who does that? It’s not like Charlie wandered off – the 12-year-old senior dog is unable to use her back legs. And so she was brought to the San Bernardino County Animal Shelter where volunteers have fallen in love with the pup who keeps smiling. Charlie at SBC 2

After having been examined by the vet staff at the shelter, the following notes have been posted:

 “The boxer has a spinal injury that caused the paralysis of the back legs. She is not in pain at all, and is a very happy and friendly boy. She does not need surgery, but  will need a home that can accommodate her special needs.”

A Facebook page for Charlie can be followed here. Advocates have been pledging funds for an approved rescue to help with Charlie’s needs. Please share this dog’s plight with friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing does save lives. For more information about this dog, reference #A502065 and contact the:

    PLEASE some kind compassionate Californian come forward and adopt Charlie – give him the safe loving home he obviously never had – he so well deserves it. And to the piss poor example of a ‘family’ who dumped him – I truly hope you ALL end up living under a filthy bridge and NO ONE cares.
