Special-needs pets

Lawrence residents who own pets with disabilities say their animals are worth the extra TLC. Most of the time, they add, their special-needs dogs and cats don’t seem to notice they’re any different from other pets. See some of these pets in action.

Izzy, a one and a half year old Australian Shepherd who has only three legs, loves to play fetch just like any other dog. Izzy's right front leg had to be amputated last summer after she was hit by a car. Her owners are Brooke and Mario Fontana, Lawrence.
