Puppy Blanche Learns to Walk With Casts

Picked up by “Pit Bulls & Parolees” star Tia Torres, the Bulldog puppy had to wear casts to correct misalignment in her front legs. Her first few steps are adorable.

Blanche is a Pit Bull puppy who was found in a sugar field outside of New Orleans. She was rescued by Tia Torres of Pit Bulls & Parolees fame, who not only became smitten with Blanche at first glance but who also discovered that the pooch had some mobility issues.

Blanche was walking on the outsides of her front paws. To that end, her soft puppy joints and bones were buckling when she attempted to scoot around. This was neither good for Blanche or her ankles.

Under the advice of the Villalobos Rescue Center’s vet, Blanche got to wear splints for a few months to help her legs develop properly. Being a fashionable pup, they were a pair of pink and green day-glo casts embellished with hearts. As the footage shows, she then had all sorts of fun while re-learning to walk with her new supports.

(Update note: Previously unseen footage also suggests that Blanche likes to serve up some particularly stinky poops.)
