Handicapped Shelter Dog Gets New Wheels

10 month old Pekingese pup Maxtor was hit by a car in Springfield Massachusetts last week. The accident left him paralyzed and unable to use his hind legs. T.J. O’Connor Adoption Center employees found a pair of wheels in storage and fashioned a wheelchair for the injured pooch, giving him a second chance at life.

Vets say he’ll need some TLC but is otherwise healthy. He’ll be available for adoption by Tuesday.

  1. Motorin Maxter. Excellent!

    Bet he won’t be up for adoption long before some great human(s) take him home.

    Keep on truckin Maxter!

  2. I am happy that all is well but how on earth does a tiny pup that size get into the street!?

    I agree with Roo, that little pup won’t be homeless for long!

  3. Ha – that’s Mom birth city – lived there for 37 years!!! Poor pup, hope the wheels help him and even more importantly we hope he gets a wonderful home that won’t let him go play in the street.

  4. It’s amazing how well animals function that we consider “handicapped”. I’m sure he’ll find a great home!

    1. That little Maxstor has the best energy and smile! So glad the right people rescued him and he was in good hands. Hopefully a good person or family will come adopt him and he will have a fantastic forever home. I love a happy ending. Thanks for the story Nigel. Much Love, MB, Josie and Blues
