Born with a severe handicap in her lower spine that cripples her from the waist down, six-week-old Harper was crawling on her chest and dragging her hind legs painfully over rough gravel when she was first spotted in a construction site on Jurong Island several months ago. It was so hard for her to search for food, that she had to swallow gravel and metal pins to alleviate the gnawing hunger in her stomach sometimes. Such was the hard life that baby Harper had. 

Her fate changed for the better when Mr. Aziz, a kind Muslim man who worked in that area, brought her to HOPE's attention. With the fosterers and volunteers' love and patience, Harper is now a changed dog. She is much happier and clearly enjoys the new lease of life given to her. After the rescue, Harper went through two more unfortunate episodes that threatened to take her away from us - a chest infection due to the haze, and a blockage in her stomach, but she braved them all, valiantly and admirably, just like a warrior. Since then, her health condition has improved a lot, though she is still wobbly and unable to control her pee and poo. We are hoping that with acupuncture and hydrotherapy, she will be able to walk normally someday. 


She is now 5 months old, and is a bundle of joy to all those who have had the good fortune to meet her. She is sweet-natured, fun-loving and as playful as a puppy can be. We hope to find someone who can give her a loving home and the proper care that she deserves.Would you be that someone?
