Cocker Spaniel
Coat length:
Benny, 10 years old, neutered male, terrier mix, 16lbs, Rear legs paralyzed

Benny is a roughly 10-year old, neutered Terrier mix. He weighs 19 lbs and is good with other dogs.  He is a very sweet boy that has had a rough go at things. Benny arrived unable to walk due to Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD). He is also low vision and has chronic dry eyes. He’ll need eye medication the rest of his life. 
The great news is that due to the location of his back injury (middle of his back) he is still able to pee and poo on his own, and he still has feeling in his legs. Also, after a visit with a neurologist, we learned that with medication and therapy, he may be able to walk again someday. He is currently on medication and is already showing some ability to walk! 
Benny is a happy boy!  He barks in excitement when his people come home and when it is meal time. He also enjoys couch time with his people, belly rubs from his people and visitors, and nap time during the day.  He sleeps great through the night. He is fantastic about receiving his eye meds. He also enjoys strolls in his wheelchair!

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
