When Gina Gould first set eyes on Casper the husky, it broke her heart. And given that he was unable to walk or even stand, the puppy was at serious risk of being put down. Gould, however, had an idea that she thought could help the poor pooch.
And that plan had something to do with her profession, as Gould is a trained Electro-Acuscope therapist who uses a machine to locate pain in animals and effectively treat it. To that end, she works with dogs and horses across southern California. And it was through her work with suffering creatures that she came to learn about Casper in the first place.
Specifically, the organization Coastal German Shepherd Rescue had contacted Gould about Casper. At the time of the call, the puppy had been sadly scheduled for euthanasia, in part because his breeder recognized that he was unsellable. But the charity, which finds homes for abandoned dogs in Orange County, California, knew that didn’t mean that Casper wasn’t adoptable.
