I was looking at a random adoption site, and came across this special needs dog, a poor guy who is paralyzed in his back end due to a ruptured disk and gets around in his own custom "wheelchair." However, I love the picture they included for him. For a guy dealing with such issues, he sure looks like he's happy as a clam despite his circumstances!! Chiquito Breed:Pekingese
Age: Approx. 7 years
Size: Approx. 13 pounds
Status: Available with Foster
Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Not Yet Determined
Good With Dogs: Yes
This one comes with wheels!! Some dogs have special collars, some use special harnesses,but our Chiquito has a doggie wheelchair that was made just for him. Chiquito came to us after a disk rupture left him paralyzed in his back end and unable to walk. He had already perfected his "scooting skills" and can zoom around the house like nobody's business using those powerhouse front legs, but now he is truly mobile. Chiquito loves getting into his chair and going for walks outside to explore the world. He goes everywhere as fast as possible and with the most determined (and comical) look on his face you have ever seen. Folks can't help but laugh out loud when Chiquito comes speeding by, so taking him out for a stroll is like spreading sunshine in the world. This little guy has an amazing spirit and is looking for an extremely special home where he will be adored for the character he is and cared for with love and patience.
