Day 29 of Adorable Pets

 

Pita

Tell us what makes your pet adorable:
Pita has always made people smile where ever he goes, which is a lot of places! Since he became paralyzed at the age of 11 months, he has never been left alone and comes everywhere with myself and my husband Matt. He is very well behaved which definitely makes his lifestyle easier. He comes to work with me everyday and on every vacation, including our honeymoon to Vieques!
Pita is a constant inspiration to us and to the people he meets during his day to day life. Thanks to his wheelchair he has an excellent quality of life, enjoys playing with other dogs, going for walks and can run faster than us! He was certified as a therapy dog in 2005 as well as becoming a Canine Good Citizen.
Strangers are always curious to know what happened to him and sometimes it becomes difficult going anywhere without being stopped for questioning.
In the end, I hope people realize that there are alternatives to putting a pet down due to a disability and we shouldn’t give up on an animal so easily. Had we listened to the vets that took care of Pita when he was injured he would have been missing out on a life full of love, long walks, jet setting and plenty of spoiling!
