Paralyzed Dog Gets Wheels – Ricky Bobby

I’m Jen Kulina-Lanese a member the animal rescue team Sampson County Animal Control called the Humane Society of the United States when they have been investigating
a large-scale breeder for quite some time a suspected puppy miller when we walked into the buildings, the stench of urine and feces and illness kind of just hung in the air and it’s just a very sad, sad scene I remember walking down one of the aisles and that’s the first time that I saw Phoenix who is now named R.B. he kinda dragged himself, making himself invisible I don’t know what he was trying to do I remember just wanting to pick him up and make him safe well this is Phoenix, he’s paralyzed in his back legs he’s covered in urine and feces right now
and his poor back end just has no muscle left it’s just all bone he was really shaky when we first picked him up and now he’s kind of seemed to calm down and relax a little bit and that’s a good feeling he knows we’re here to help he’s got plenty of chances and
opportunities he just needs to be with somebody who loves him my name is Megan bliss I’m a veterinary technician at
CareFirst in a hospital in North Carolina I first met RB when the Humane Society, hi honey, had brought dogs from the Sampson County puppy mill to our office oh boy! I immediately started working on a cart I
knew that I could build him one and the second I put him in the final
product nothing could stop him he’s just are our best little guy and he’s got his big brother tucker and they love each other so much seeing him today, you never would know that that’s where he came from and and I think that’s the best part because that’s the life the dog should have sorry the Humane Society of the United States
rescues thousands of animals every year just like Ricky Bobby but they’re
still so many more out there suffering we can’t do this without you be a hero for animals please make a special gift to support rescues like this and all of the work that we do

  26. J F says:

    This is not the quality of life a dog needs, this is sad and not the humane thing

  27. Dennis Logan says:

    I am not a violent man, but I believe that anyone who runs a puppy mill should be made to live in the same conditions for at least a year. Anybody agree?

  48. Sammy Lachebek says:

    Try to make him swim five times a week and you'll see the big changes he will make, he will be able to walk again because the nervous system is able to be revived through swimming sport in the swimming pool… I am sure…

    keep it up , its amazing, thank youu so much

  77. Cynthia Hawkins says:

    What is probably MOST wonderful? As you pick them up, and carry them out of the Hellish places where they have been confined, these suffering dogs still can often wag their tails, and lick your face from sheer gratitude at being saved. The work you do – it's why we support HSUS. Amazing. It is now 2018. We are proud to be HSUS sponsors here in NYC. Bless y'all..

  82. sleepy55 says:

    Good, that you could help him! All the best for little Phoenix!
    My Dachshund was paralysed too. And we had a hard time. But luckily surgery at his spine could repair it and now he can run again! We all are so happy. (Sorry if Imy language is not correct, I am from Germany.)

    Be careful, now that your pet has mobility, a cop just might find it to be a threat and shoot it, we pray that the demon Blue ISIS domestic terrorist will never harm this sweet precious animal.

  88. Lauren Duran says:


  89. Big O says:

    Thanks for sharing the video. I cried since I saw my little doggie. I have a doggie identical to this one. And this Monday he woke up screaming and was dragging himself. I took him to the vet and he said he is going to lose the use of his rear legs. They put him on meds and he started to walk but barely. I would love to know how you made that little wheelchair. I would love to make my doggie one too. It breaks my heart to see our baby drag himself.

  90. r lynn says:

    There's such a plethora of evidence to prove that letting dogs lick your face and mouth is extremely dangerous or at least very disgusting. I can't believe people working at the humane society would do it. Are they uninformed?

  91. chiranjibi adhikari says:

    When I watch like that vedio I like to cry

  92. logmeindangit says:

    I love what you've done for RB. Thank you. I was curious, though, about the weight distribution between his front legs and the wheels. I know this video is six years old, so I hope RB is still around. When I watched the video, it looked like he might do better if the wheels were moved a bit more forward, so the axle is at least where his hips are, so his front legs carried less of his entire weight. Also, with a "wheelie bar" like I see he has, so he would not flip over when he bounced on those happy front legs! I hope he's still around and doing well!

    Thanks for sharing this success story. Puppy mills are so awful.

  93. Yavor Hadgiev says:

    Stop buying animals – adopt them and treat them well! 🙂

  94. Wawa Willegers says:

    Poor innocent little angels.
    Thank you for saving them.

  95. Lucy Hemmersen says:

    I hope those puppy farmers get paper cuts every day, the sick freaks.

  96. Pollipi Pop says:

    I love seeing this, it brings me to tears, you see my Pom has his disk ruptured and his doctor said he may be paralyzed, he refuses to eat,drink or go out to use the bathroom and he can’t walk.
    My guardian works until night and I won’t get home till afternoon from school. So we decided the best thing is to put him down, it brings me to tears to know tomorrow is gonna be his last day and seeing these people have the time to give this dog the best life. Such wonderful people❤️

  97. Matt - says:

    I also have a dog in a wheelchair and he’s living a happy life just like every other dog i love seeing people help dogs like that
