Maxtor the handicapped dog

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.
