Bree, Kyle, Noodle & Shamus

Adaptive Dog

Kyle and Bree adopted Noodle over 3 years ago with a spinal cord injury from unknown trauma. She has such a spirit for adventure that her disability does not slow her down. She continues to inspire us everyday to adapt our life when less planned changes occur. She inspires us to take each moment, each hike and every step in stride. Noodle is less than impressed with her younger and otherwise clumsy but fearlessly loyal brother Shamus. Through our work as physical therapists and Noodle’s inspiration we want to encourage all people to be outdoorsy regardless of physical ability.
