Thirteen-year-old Labrador retriever Gibson lost the use of his hind legs, as often is the case at that age, and owner Sally Armstrong was facing a horrible decision of whether to put her dog down. The dog’s organs were healthy, so along with some acupuncture help from Sun Valley Animal Center veterinarian Heidi Woog, Armstrong was given a donated dog wheelchair and Gibson is again a common sight walking around Elkhorn streets. Armstrong reports that the dog is happy again and quite active. Apparently, the wheelchair’s previous user was a boxer who when hooked up liked to chase other dogs.
