MAC is a 3 yr old golden retriever who was hit by a truck on Christmas Eve of 2010. He was rushed to an emergency vet who told his owners that he was paralyzed from the waist down and would likely never walk again. He was catheterized and sent home where he was confined to a bed on the floor of his home. His owners then approached a local pool & hot tub company looking for a pre-owned hot tub that might be used for water therapy in the hopes that MAC could regain some use of his back legs again. Upon hearing of his plight, the store owners (who have goldens themselves) crafted a custom therapy pool for MAC free of charge.
