Happy Hector is a ‘snuggle bug’

A tiny disabled dog that loves snuggling and zooming around on his wheels is searching for a place to call home.

Three-year-old Hector arrived at Flori’s Friends Rescue, in Kent, traumatised and paralysed.

Charity founder, Natalia George, took him under her wing and nursed him back to health.

Now she is desperate to find him a “special person to show him forever happiness and true love and safety”.

Natalia told The Mirror: “Hector had an absolutely horrific start to life.

“We don’t know what happened to him, but his back is covered in multiple scars from what looks like human-inflicted trauma. He arrived to us paralysed and in a bit of state.”

Since being in the care of rescuers, Hector has had his rear legs amputated and is now thriving in his miniature wheelchair.

Natalia describes him as “naturally shy” and says he doesn’t ever bite or growl and is “absolutely non-aggressive”, despite his history of abuse.

Hector is looking for a home with other playful dogs, as he loves playing tug of war and chasing pups round the garden.

Natalia said: “We think other dogs have brought him out of his shell and allowed him to come round at his own pace.”

She says Hector is a “real snuggle bug” and gives very good cuddles.

Hector is good with cats and can live with older children, but is looking for a quiet and calm home to lay his head.

Any potential adopters would need to have time and understanding to let him grow and flourish.

He doesn’t need long walks but shorter, regular walks throughout the day.

Natalia added: “He comes with a custom-made wheelchair and everything else you need to home him. The rescue will provide full training for adopters on how to fit his nappies, as he is an incontinent dog.”

If you have a place in your heart and home for adorable Hector, please get in touch with Flori’s Friends Rescue to adopt him.

Another pup that suffered a horrific start to life is Tiffany, who was taken into Cincinnati Animal CARE in the US.

She was found with a hairband tied so tightly around her snout, “it went down to the bone” and left her with intense swelling.

Vets provided her with “immediate treatment” and thankfully, she is now stitched up and on the road to recovery.
