Breaking the Chains Animal Rescue (BTC) found the dogs during the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. The dogs were injured and Walkin’ Pets, a pet mobility company, reported that they found Johnny, who had been shot by the Russian military and left stranded with his back legs paralyzed. By the time rescuers got to Johnny, the brave pup had pulled himself two whole miles with just the strength of his front legs. Phoenix, on the other hand, was hit by an airstrike. The poor dog lost his back paws and injured one of his front paws.
Thanks to rescuers, both dogs survived, and they were taken in by BTC, who worked with an animal rescue in Ukraine to take on the dogs. When the dogs arrived, BTC knew they needed to reach out to Walkin’ Pets to start getting wheelchairs ready for the pair. Walkin’ Pets donated a wheelchair to each dog to help them learn how to walk again.
Being the smart pups they are, Johnny and Phoenix quickly picked up the skill and are both walking again, thanks to the organizations. Now, they are ready for adoption. Their future families need to know that they will need extra assistance because of their injuries.

So many innocent lives have been lost, countless volunteers are helping to rescue animals all over the country, and many people are staying behind to help feed hundreds of refugees every day. The impact of the Russian invasion has been devastating for the environment and the global food supply and has even caused mass animal deaths like these dolphins in the Black Sea. Activists all around the world are standing for the people of Ukraine and demanding an end to this war.
