Not So Happy Update On LaCroix

Sometimes things don’t work out. And no matter how hard we work or hope, there’s heartbreak. Real life is not a fairytale; it’s complicated, confusing, and often painful. There are happy moments, but happy endings are rare and ever elusive.

A few weeks ago I shared the story of LaCroix, a three-month-old Cattle dog puppy born with spina bifida. LaCroix was rescued with several other dogs from a hoarding situation. When I met him he was an adorable bundle of joy with a zest for life and lots of puppy sparkle in his gorgeous blue eyes. He didn’t stay still for long; he loved to play, learn new things, and make people smile.

But sadly, things change and sometimes quickly.

The Specials: Adopting A Dog With Spina Bifida

Dogs represent our best selves; they are always grateful, loyal, brave, and genuinely want to make things better. Dogs are natural optimists; they believe in happy endings and always root for the underdog – even when they are the underdog.

LaCroix is a 3-month-old Cattle Dog with a boatload of energy, zest for life, and lots of puppy sparkle in his blue eyes. He is a little guy (for now) with ears as big as his heart. Like most puppies, he doesn’t stand still for long. He loves to play, learn new things, and make people smile - and he does it all on wheels!

LaCroix was born with spina bifida and his back legs are paralyzed. Sometimes being a little different makes you extra special and a whole lot more adorable!
