Tinkle | Dachshund
Tinkle lived the high life in Sydney. She suffered a disc prolapse when she was 6, but despite surgery, she was unable to walk and found herself surrendered to Rescue.
Luckily, Tinkle was re-homed in October 2012 with Tracey and became a 'live-in' patient.
By this time, Tinkle had been a paraplegic for over 6 months. She was living in a mobility cart and had extensive muscle wastage.
Her program included Electro-Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Moxabustion and Chinese Herbs. By February 2013, Tinkle was able to walk up to 100 meters at a time and became a champion swimmer.
Unfortunately at the end of June, Tinkle suffered a stroke and is no longer with us, but is running free in our hearts. She is buried in our memorial garden.
