A disabled dog, picked up as a stray in New London, Conn., is in urgent need of a new family before she is put to death, reported Wednesday's WTNH News.

The dog, a German shepherd, was picked up last month and taken to the New London Animal Control, after she was spotted dragging herself alongside a road; the dog is believed to have degenerative myelopathy.

Fast forward to today...with the assistance of CT Animal House, the dog, named "Danica," is now mobile, thanks to donated wheels from Eddie's Wheels.

Though Danica is now able to get around, she still needs her own family, or she will be put down next week; Danica is said to be best as an only dog.

Anyone who feels that they have the right home for this special dog is asked to contact the New London Animal Control at 860-447-5231.

I will share with disabled dogs rescues I find through Google tomorrow. In the mean time, I saw that FB page Misty's Journey helped rescue Balto the German Shepherd early November. Facebook friends please post Danica to her page and any other dog rescue pages you know of that are reputable and can help! TY! Michelle

This girl has been rescued by a vet tech.

Diane Musil Monte- From ACO Tonya "LOOK WHO'S SMILING NOW!!!! Thank you to everyone out there who networked and shared this beautiful girl!! She went home this evening to a wonderful vet tech who works with a neurologist at Pieper Memorial VH in Middletown. Danica, now Callie, will be going in for an MRI tomorrow, with the hopes that there is a slight chance surgery can help! She will also be starting physical therapy to keep up what muscle tone she has left. Thank you again to everyone who helped make this possible! As soon as I get more info and pictures, I will be certain to share with you all! And a huge thanks to Ct Animal House for helping get wheels for this girl, and getting her her out there in the public's view!

Great news! This dog should be a icon for those who mistreat animals and humans simply because they are unable to see how beautiful they are. She should also be an inspiration to those who loss an ability and are feeling less than they are. She should tour Veteran's hospitals and make school visits to educate kids to look for the value that exists in every one of us. Maybe she could be a rep for our HANDS AROUND THE WORLD 2014 event. She might have a real future and a lot of work to do! CPR for the innocents: the animals and the people.
