Meet Spencer. Spencer is a 3-4 year old male weim that was surrendered to a shelter. He is a small dog at heart and loves to climb into the lap of anyone who gives him attention. When with his original owners he was hit by a car and never treated. There was quite severe damage to one of his front legs. The lack of treatment has caused the elbow joint in his one leg to fuse. He is still very mobile despite this injury and jumps on the couch, bed, etc... Even with his disability he loves to run and play!

A Massachusetts mother of three just wanted to be as normal as possible, going out places in public with her family. For her, that requires that she take another "family member," Mikey, her service dog. However, Mikey did not have an ID or vest which would let him into those public places without having to produce a doctor's note or answering many questions every place they went. After posting a wish on WUAH, Wish Ambassador Courtney Hoover decided that this mom and her family should be able to go out and enjoy themselves like all other families without questions.
