BeBe had lost the use of her back legs to to the confinement. The vet also said that she has severe neurological problems due to the breeding.
She also has a wheel chair. We rescued BeBe 11/10/09 and she has now seen sunlight,grass and best of all does not use her wheelchair except on long walks!
We work with her everyday, stretching and making her use her legs. I also put her in the jetted tub for therapy.
She can run and jump two feet up on the couch. Since she has neurological problems, following commands is sometimes hard for her. But she is learning some hand signs better than voice commands.
She is also potty pad trained to the surprise of the vet. He also stated about 6 more months of constant care and exercise she may be walking at 95% and never need her wheel chair!
She was deemed unadoptable and scheduled to be put to sleep due to her condition. I could not stand the thought of this and took her in to help her.
She is very playful and keeps the older ones in a hissy at times. She also makes a very funny badger noise when she plays.
Welcome home BeBe, all the bad days are behind you now! We love you and will work with you as long as it takes! Update 9/21/11 BeBe is thriving and happy. No longer uses her wheelchair and 80% housebroken. Way to go BeBe!

Update-8/2013 Bebe is thriving and greatly improved on her house training skills. So much so, she now has the freedom to free roam at night, with boundaries she adheres to! It is obvious she is quite proud of herself! So are we!
