These days, it’s depressing to watch the news. It’s a cynical time, and too often, the news contains a cart-full of bad news. But in the case of a news story out of Cabot, Arkansas, an inspirational little pup rolled his way into the hearts of people all around the United States.
Grimmy, a year-old Shih Tzu, was a matted, dirty mess when he was found on a Cabot road. But a bath could fix that. The biggest problem? Grimmy’s back was broken. He couldn’t walk, move his legs, or wag his tail. According to Mike Wheeler, the Cabot Animal Services Supervisor, he had probably been hit by a car.
So what makes this little rescue special? Even with a broken back, Grimmy had “more heart” than Mike had ever seen. Grimmy didn’t complain when the shelter shaved and bathed him, and he just seemed to want to survive. Mike refused to give up on the little fur-ball. He just needed a plan.
Through a lot of research and a little luck, Wheeler found a company in Washington State who makes mini wheel chariots for dogs and cats. Mike sent in Grimmy’s measurements, and the company sent Grimmy a new outlook on life, completely free.
According to Mike, Grimmy acted like he had been connected to the cart his whole life. He took off, running, and then immediately backed up when he got into a corner.
Thanks to local reporter, Adam Rodriguez, the story moved faster than Grimmy. The Lawson family from Connecticut fell in love with this little dog and called Cabot to adopt him. Soon, Grimmy flew to Connecticut to meet his forever family. They were all smiles to meet their new little addition with the big heart!
