Paralyzed Stray Dog Found On Beach Thriving In New Home

A paralyzed stray canine that was found on a beach in Thailand is doing extremely well thanks to his unbreakable spirit and his kind-hearted rescuer.

There are countless dogs that desperately need human help and some of them are fortunate enough to get it.

A paralyzed stray canine that was found on a beach in Thailand is one such example. He is doing extremely well thanks to his unbreakable spirit and his kind-hearted rescuer.

During the first encounter, Meagan Penman watched and recorded the dog as he dragged his back legs over the sand. She immediately took to him and set out to help.

Penman named him Leo and contacted a number of shelters, but staffers from every facility wouldn’t accommodate him. Penman quickly realized she was on her own so she opened up a Facebook account for Leo and a GoFundMe page to help pay for his veterinary expenses.

When X-rays were taken, veterinarians concluded his back was broken and that he was paralyzed. They said he would never be able to walk again.

Despite that unsettling prognosis, Leo’s spirit and happy demeanor still shined. He spent three months receiving veterinary care before being flown to Canada to be with his new human mom; Penman.

Successful crowdfunding made it all happen. Leo has since received a wheelchair for his hind legs, which is assisting him in walking and chasing squirrels without having to drag his limbs.

Penman says he is doing great at his Canadian home and has even put on 5 pounds since his arrival.

  1. This is a story that makes me smile & warms my heart. 🙂 That was nice of
    Meagan Penman to take care of & bring Leo from Thailand to Canada & get
    crowdfunding sources to give Leo the medical treatment he needed. This is
    the first time I’ve heard of this story. I wonder if she named Leo after
    Leonardo DiCaprio because he filmed one movie in Thailand called “The
    Beach” or if the dog was named Leo because he is strong like the Zodiac’s
    Leo Lion. Anyways, I just saw her Facebook & GoFundMe page for Leo. Leo
    looks really happy & healthier. I’m glad that Leo found a good home & has a
    great, caring, & compassionate human parent now. Thanks for finding &
    sharing this story with us & have a nice Thanksgiving & holiday season. :-)
