Hello Rina and I are looking for some help. It’s fun help we need your vote::: but first a little history.
Rina North Collier fire departments first k9 to excel in urban tracking, wilderness trailing, building searches, open area search and off leash obedience had to be retired from her duties as a search and rescue dog due to a devastating Canine disease.
Canine degenerative myelopathy.
Degenerative myelopathy, or DM, is a disease of the spinal cord in dogs. It typically occurs between the ages of 8 and 14. The disease begins with the loss of coordination in the hind limbs. Dogs with degenerative myelopathy wobble when they walk, they can knuckle over, or they can begin dragging their hind feet.
DM disrupts the normal communication pathways between the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of coordination and eventual paralysis.
Rina was blessed that a friend had a wheel chair for her to use and sent it to her as soon as she heard the horrifying news.
However Rina was didn’t realize she was in a wheelchair and therefore she kept rolling in the chair.
That’s when a wonderful company stepped in: handicapped pets they provided a means for Rina to get around, no more rolling in her chair. she continues to track and play with the other dogs as normal as can be.
