There are many examples of dogs with disabilities who go on to do amazing things, such as serving as therapy animals or competing in sporting events. And there are also many cases of dogs forming unexpected bonds with other animals, including those from different species.
So while it may be a fictional scenario, the idea of a small puppy in a wheelchair becoming a guide dog for a blind fox is certainly an inspiring one. It shows that even when faced with challenges, we can still find ways to help and support one another.
A dog in a wheelchair has become an unusual guide for a blind fox who has wowed hundreds of people who have heard his touching story of brotherhood.
The blind fox reportedly learned to follow the sound of the wheels on his older brother’s chair, strengthening their close relationship. Jack loves being Pumpkin’s guide and considers himself to be her older brother.
Both animals shared a similar history in that they were saved from being put to death because of health problems.
Jack had a tumor in his spine that affected his ability to walk, necessitating special care for the remainder of his life. Fortunately, the veterinarian Ana Lapaz-Mendez gave him with the foster home he craved and took care of the dog’s medical needs.
Pumpkin, on the other hand, arrived at the woman with two broken legs and was practically dead, but thanks to prompt medical assistance, she was able to rescue herself.
When Jack came, Pumpkin had already lived a year at Anne’s home in East Finchley, north London. The little puppy has become Pumpkin’s brother and to defend her from any dangers since he arrived at the end of last year.
When the two of them take walks in the park, Pumpkin occasionally gets diverted, but the puppy always stops and waits patiently for her to continue. Jack is very vigilant and aware of any danger; even when other dogs or cats try to disturb Pumpkin, he pushes them away.
Although Jack was unfamiliar with the region at first, he was able to follow Ana, and the fox eventually followed him. When he hears the wheels on Jack’s chair, he proceeds in the same direction, and if he goes ahead for any reason, he stops and waits.
Even though they get along well, not everything is perfect, and they occasionally clash, just like any other pair of brothers. But, even if they fight among themselves, Jack is always there to take care of her, after all, he will always be her older brother and special guide.
