Lovey Loaves is a rescue dedicated to the rehabilitation of dogs with special needs. When the odds are stacked against these wonderful pups, Lovey Loaves swoops in and gives them the care they need to succeed. With a record of transforming an array of incredible canines, it’s no wonder this organization was the first to hear of a tiny two-legged puppy that could benefit from their expertise.
Cheri Wells of the Lovey Loaves Rescue was contacted on the night before Christmas Eve with a dire plea for help. A puppy was with only her two back legs, and her mother was beginning to push her away for feedings. Being only 2 weeks old, this tiny puppy needed immediate help if she was going to survive.
Lovey Loaves agreed to take on the small puppy, and were blown away by how small she actually was. She was no bigger than the palm of Cheri’s hand, and required around the clock feedings. Cheri and her husband Ward were in for a challenge. They named the tiny puppy Noelle in honor of their new Christmas miracle, and vowed to do whatever it took to help her thrive.
As the weeks went on Noelle grew stronger and stronger. She began to push herself around on her two back legs and was beginning to learn how to scoot herself around. Though she could move small distances, Cheri and Ward knew this wasn’t enough. They knew it was time to put her in her very own wheelchair, just like many of the other disabled pups in their home. With being involved in events such as The Wheels on Wallstreet with other rescues that focus on handicapped pets, they were able to invest in a custom set of wheels from Eddie’s Wheels for this deserving girl.
Once the wheels arrived, Noelle was not immediately thrilled. She spent the first few days just sitting in her wheelchair, unsure of what to do next. Though Noelle did not immediately take to her wheelchair, Cheri and Ward remained patient and helped the tiny pup adjust to her life on wheels.
“Noëlle’s not doing much yet. She’s mostly sitting, chillin’, taking it in and getting used to the feel of it. Treats enticed a few steps out of her but she didn’t go racing down the block. It’s a work in progress, but man oh man it’s pawsitively PAWSOME to see her in a cart!” – Lovey Loaves Instagram
Before they knew it, Noelle was flying around the yard in her custom cart. It’s as if she could finally live the life she always wanted to live, and she was living it to the fullest!
Now a days you can find an array of videos that feature Noelle cruising around her yard and proving to the world that your differences do not make you defective. With Lovey Loaves on her side, we have no doubt that Noelle will continue to inspire the world!
Thank you Lovey Loaves for the hard work and dedication you put in for the disabled dogs of the world!
