Hundreds of people will attend a charity dog walk that aims to raise cash to help charities and dogs with disabilities.
The event has already raised over £8000 and takes place at Boultham Park, Lincoln on April 10th .
The walk is being organised by Tammie Fox, the owner of Pumpkin, an 8-month-old West Highland Terrier.
Tammie fostered Pumpkin, who is paralysed from the waist down, from Breeds in Need in October before later adopting her.
Disability has not stopped Pumpkin, who with the aid of wheels is able to enjoy going on walks with Tammie’s other dog, Smiggle the Jack Russell. “She goes out every day and has little adventures so she’s happy.”
Winston’s Wheels said “The money raised can help us add eight or nine wheelchairs to our charity.”
Mrs Fox documents the journey on social media and added “It’s amazing to know that people love animals as much as I do and that they love Pumpkin.”
£10,000 is expected to be raised with a tombola on the day and the café baking some cakes to raise more money.
As well as helping a lot of dogs and charities, Mrs Fox hopes the walk will show that disabled dogs can live a happy life.
“Please don’t overlook dogs with disabilities, Pumpkin can do anything that your dog can do, she’s got the ‘westitude’ and she’s amazing.”
