The Reality:
Paralyzed dogs do take more looking after than able bodied dogs, but they don’t need round the clock care.  Canine paralysis is not a death sentence – like any dog a paralyzed dog lives for the moment.  They don’t lie around feeling sorry for themselves, instead they just get on with life, adapting to their disability.  Paralyzed dogs are the same as any other dog,  their legs just don’t work.  They can play, get into as much trouble as any able bodied dog and in a cart you may well find yourself struggling to keep up.
