These doggies, thanks to a very noble gesture, have been able to start again in spite of their disabilities. They need more help and understanding than any other furry one, but that has not been a problem for Tracey Fowler.
It all started when she lost her beloved German shepherd a few years ago. From that moment on, she decided to adopt all the dogs that were not normally picked up in the shelters.
It seems to be the best decision she has ever made, because now her dog family is made up of 8 hairy ones and it has been an experience she has enjoyed to the fullest. And the dogs couldn’t be more grateful. She calls them The Fowler Herd. One of them fought a disease until he lost the mobility in his legs. However, he was happy until the last day.
“Hayden crossed the Rainbow Bridge after a battle with degenerative myelopathy.”
From that moment on, she decided to honor him by helping other dogs with similar conditions. “I currently have eight dogs. Six are special needs and two are German shepherds I had before adopting the others,” she said.
The fact is, the Fowler Herd has lacked nothing. They’re all very happy playing together in the snow, always under Tracy’s noble care. She says that, despite what you might think, taking care of a handicapped dog isn’t so hard after all. Although it takes dedication.
She’s gonna keep helping these dogs as long as she can. They need special love and care, which not everyone is willing to give.
