Top Five Reasons Why Specially-Abled Dogs Rock

By KristinAvery. | Giving Back Dog Info

Today is National Specially-Abled Pets Day - a day to educate and celebrate dogs with physical challenges like paralysis, blindness or deafness.

Top Five Reasons Why Specially-Abled Dogs Rock Whether from injury or birth defect, specially-abled dogs make wonderful companions and can live happy, healthy lives. Sadly, specially-abled dogs are often overlooked and euthanized by both breeders and shelters alike.

Top Five Reasons Specially-Abled Dogs Rock:

1. Specially-abled dogs possess an enormous capacity for love and make amazing companions.

While it's true they may require extra care, training, and planning, they help us live in the moment and their gratitude, loyalty and love is immense.

2. Specially-abled dogs inspire everyone they meet. 

These unique dogs do not realize they are different. They never give up or feel sorry for themselves, and they have much to teach us about acceptance and living life to the fullest. Top Five Reasons Why Specially-Abled Dogs Rock

3. Specially-abled dogs often have amazing abilities and talents in other areas.

A blind dog might develop sensitive hearing; a deaf dog, an extra keen sense of smell; a dog paralyzed in the back legs, superhero upper body strength.

4. Specially-abled dogs help children (and adults) develop empathy and compassion. 

These dogs lead by example, teaching us about tolerance, respect and kindness for all living things in spite of their outer shell.

5. Specially-abled dogs are beautifully imperfect.

Our differences make us extraordinary. We all have quirks and flaws that make us unique and truly ourselves. These special dogs have much to share and when given a chance, their love and gratitude is epic. Most importantly, by welcoming a specially-abled dog into your home, you might just be saving a life! Sadly, many these one-of-a-kind dogs still face a greater risk of euthanasia than other dogs. Please consider a specially-abled dog because second chances are amazing whether you are the giving or receiving side.

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Charlie Hendrix

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

Gary Beaton

Great Cover

I been getting these covers for many years and have never been disappointed with them great quality and well made something you don't see very much anymore !

Jere Miller

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Ryan Bracken

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Leon Campbell

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Marchelle Jones

Super nice

I purchased seat covers for my Ford F-350 and my Ford Edge - really nice fit and I have piece of mind knowing my seats are protected!

Deby Hackney

Well Done!

Bought the seat cover for a rental SUV we were using on a road trip. It worked great. Kept off all the dog hair and our fur baby rolled around on it like crazy. Am going to move it to our everyday SUV. Nicely done!
