7 Christmas Gifts For Handicapped and Senior Dogs

 

1.  Interactive dog puzzles
Whether it’s due to old age or a disability, dogs need to keep their minds sharp and focused. Hagen Mind Games from SwellPets offers three games in one to stimulate a handicapped dog’s problem-solving skills. They’re fun too.

6.  Suspenders and Diapers

If you can’t find a Christmas sweater that will pull over a dog wheelchair try a pair of colorful suspenders instead. The suspenders are actually made to keep doggie diapers safely in place.

  • #Happiness! One tiny post that came our way on our Facebook Home page turned into some BIG. We reached out to the person on that post, she called us, we introduced her to someone who could help, and as a result of our chat, 12 shelter dogs that were on an Alambama euthanasia list, will be driven to Georgia for adoption. THIS is networking. THIS is bettering and saving the lifes of animals in need. And all it took was a phone call. #MakeThatCall Pinned: 29 Sep 2018
