Dog that lost hind legs in horrific accident refuses to use wheelchair, prefers to hop around on front legs instead
The King of Thailand saw a picture of the dog and decided to donate the wheelchair along with dog food
Tay-Tay the dog tragically lost his hind legs in a car accident and it was unclear whether he would ever be able to walk again. Despite all odds, the brave dog is now reportedly so strong that he refuses a wheelchair which was donated by the King of Thailand.
Tay-Tay prefers to get around using his front two legs in the animal shelter in Chonburi Thailand where the dog currently resides. Footage reveals that Tay-Tay has been making his way around the shelter using his front legs. He has lived at the animal shelter for the past four years and the owner revealed that she did not put him up for adoption as he "seems happy" there.
An animal charity called Watchdog Thailand took to social media to share Tay-Tay's story which attracted a lot of attention. King Maha Vajiralongkorn of Thailand also saw the picture and decided to support Tay-Tay.
The King donated dog food to shelter and also donated a special canine wheelchair in the name of his royal pet dog Khun Fu. He also had a veterinary "wheelchair expert" to observe and examine the dog and his need for the walking equipment.
However, Tay-Tay displayed no interest in using the wheelchair and the expert concluded that his front two legs were strong enough to support him. 32-year-old Julian Küng shot the video of Tay-Tay walking and shared, "It's amazing to see that the dog is still capable of eating, walking and even running when he wants to. He didn't lose his curious nature either. Every now and then, he tries to run out of the shelter. Since he's not able to turn quickly and escape the busy Chonburi traffic, the owner Peerapha has to catch Tay-Tay and return him to the shelter," as reported by DailyMail.
Tay-Tay is currently in the care of the dog shelter owner Peerapha Suwanich who houses 40 dogs and around 200 stray cats at the shelter.
