Sadie is a 10-yr-old Chihuahua mix weighing approximately 12 pounds. She somehow injured her back legs and is temporarily paralyzed, according to A Forever Home Animal Rescue. 

“The vet feels she’ll have use of them when the injury heals. She’s a sweet girl who is very depressed and confused, because she is with us and not at the home she’s known for so many years. We are looking for either a foster or a forever home for this sweet mellow girl,” the shelter states.
