Meet Hansie

Hans Proko FrontHans Proko Side

Hans or “Hansie” (as his owners, Steve and Ruth Ann Proko most often referred to him) was a thriving 8 year old German Shepherd when he began having weakness in his rear limbs and dragging his paws. In December of 2013, he was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy, a progressive neurological disease. When Hans began really struggling, the Prokos obtained a Walkin’ Wheels dog cart which he readily adapted to and was able to resume a more active lifestyle.

Sadly, Hans recently passed away but through the Proko’s endeavors, he was able to enjoy more freedom throughout his life
