Reeves

Black Labrador Retriever - Baby - Male
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrainedSpecial Needs

Reeves was hit by a car in April 2017 and left scared and severely injured on the side of the road. We soon learned his spine had been severed and he’s lost the use of his back legs. We brought him to WSU on May 16th to see if there was any chance that surgery could fix his back but it was not possible and he has about a 5% chance of regaining the use of his back legs. He is not in pain, and after consulting with some vet specialists who we trust, we were assured he could live a pain free happy life. With the outpouring of love and support from our community of dog lovers, Mikey’s Chance plans to provide this sweet pup what he needs to live a long and happy life. Reeves is incontinent and does require a catheter twice a day to empty his bladder. He can poop on his own but he has no control over when or where it will happen.
Reeves does have a scoot bag to help him get around inside the home and also a specially fitted wheelchair for outside and inside mobility.
He LOVES other dogs and children, cats are an unknown but since he is unable to chase he is likely considered safe around them.

Like all Mikey’s Chance dogs, this dog will come to you from a foster home that has provided loving one-on-one attention, socialization and some basic training, as well as quality food and exercise.
