When Kathy rescued Henry, she was delighted when she found a great home for him. A young mom and dad, a couple of kids; even another dog for him to play with. It was a huge success and she was always so grateful this darling boy got a wonderful home.
All went well until two years ago, when Henry lost feeling in his back legs. There was no feeling there at all; he couldn't even wag his tail. Kathy was brought back in. We stand by our dogs for their entire lives.
It was a mystery: Lots of tests and x-rays. Lots of guessing; but everyone flummoxed Why couldn't he walk? He couldn't even stand. What was going on?

The owners, for the first year, did their best. There was a procedure we wanted to try, but the doctor whose care Henry was under, was less than hopeful for anything to work and his owners didn't want to try it. We were paying for Henry's care during this time, hoping for a miracle. Henry got around by dragging himself and the situation was not ideal.
About a year into this situation, the owners called Kathy and said that it was time to put Henry to sleep. 'His quality of life is not good,' they told her. He had started to soil himself, as he couldn't get outside quickly enough.
That was our cue: We were able to step in and take our boy back.
We believe in no-kill as long as the animal isn't suffering. Henry was not in pain; but he couldn't walk! It was our turn to see if we could find something to help and we started the new procedure we had discovered online: It's called Acuscope.
Of course, it has cost us a small fortune.
Henry is in our vets care. He is special needs and it's best he stays there for now. They love him. Everyone falls in love with Henry; but of course they can't keep him there for free.
Then Henry travels regularly to LA for his treatments. Hotels, travel; the treatments themselves. The bills are racking up at an alarming rate.
We have news to share with you: IT WORKED!!! THE ACUSCOPE WORKED!!!!!
We may be broke, but our Henry can stand and walk! He's a bit wobbly, but with each treatment he is getting better and you know what? It WILL continue to get better each time!
We want you to see Henry's journey at the start, his video shows a sad, scared,extremely depressed boy, trapped in a high kill shelter; because no one wanted him. The second video shows our beautiful Henry today; a sweet, adult dog, who has had a rough couple of years and is finally getting on his feet (excuse the pun). Henry is a special dog to us of course, but in reality he's a special dog to everyone. Whoever he comes into contact with, just simply falls in love with him.
So please watch his first video, of a young, frightened Henry just days before he was rescued and the video taken just a few days ago, of Henry, going through his physical therapy.
Then if you believe we MUST carry on till he is back to his wonderful self, please donate to our most darling Henry. The dog who was responsible for The Samadhi Legacy Foundation starting all those years ago. We also are looking for a special needs foster in Los Angeles (near Glendora ideal) and an adopter!! Henry is one of the most special dogs we know! Adopter will not be responsible for the cure of Henry- that is our mission!
So once again, please join our battle and donate to our gorgeous boy's fundraiser. Henry deserves to have his story continue.
