Cafe Conversations |Rescued from Roadside Trash, Pup Now Walks After Therapy


Once Trash, Pup Now Walks After Therapy – Orlando News Story – WESH Orlando.

WINTER PARK, Fla. — Today, Harper looks like a normal puppy, but just weeks ago she was nearly thrown away in a trash can by a breeder.

The pup’s life nearly ended on the side of the road in Seminole County, where a woman says she stopped to check out a man selling puppies for $50.

“She noticed a trash bag on the floor next to him and the bag was making noises. She asked what was in the bag and he declined to answer,” said Erica Daniel with Dolly’s Foundation, a pit bull rescue organization.

Inside that bag was Harper. The seller deemed the pit bull puppy unsellable because she could not stand. It’s called swimmer puppy syndrome. Experts say the dogs usually don’t survive.

“They stay on their chest. Their chest wall flattens out,” said hydro dog therapist Bev McCartt.

I found this a great story of a little pup that was thrown out as trash and rescued by an earthly angel appearing at the right moment.

The puppies who are born with this condition have no value as they cannot be sold.  Unfortunately, they do not live long.  This little guy is proving what a little love and time can do for another living soul.
