About Rooster

Adoption Fee: $200
Chihuahua mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

My name is Papi but my call name is Rooster. I'm a tiny little guy of only 10 lbs. About 5 years ago I was in a car accident with my family. They were all ok but I was not. I was paralyzed. That was rough. The vet said I should be euthanized but my family said no. They worked with me doing some water therapy and learned how to express my bladder since I can't do it on my own (super easy to do). I even got my very own set of wheels! I was happy again. Fast forward and my family got evicted and me and my brother got sent to animal services. They separated us and my brother went off to another home almost immediately which left me alone and terrified. What was my fate? My chances of surviving there were almost zero. Then a rescue put in for me. And then they bailed on me. I saw my life go down the drain at that moment.Luckily Polka Dogz came through and I'm safe. The first two weeks were a little rough during the transition since my foster has 7 other dogs. I can have a little attitude but I settled in after a couple of weeks and actually became friends with her other paralyzed pup. We're like two peas in a pod.Now I'm looking for my own home with a special person. I have a few quirks to work through but I'm a super loving boy. I like to snuggle or hang out in my bed. I've started playing with toys again and I love to go for walks in my wheelchair. I'm quite good at it. I would like to be your only dog but I do learn to get along with others. I'm on a pretty good schedule so as long as you express me about 3 times a day all is good. I'm actually pretty low maintenance for a special needs guy. My life has been turned upside down 3 times and I'm only 8 years old. Can you please help me find my FOREVER home?
