Facts About Me





My Story

Hot Rod may seem like a strange name for this little dog, but when he was rescued his back legs were paralyzed. He used a wheelchair to get around and boy was he fast. Shortly after joining Second Chance Pets he had back surgery. The progress this little guy has made is amazing. In just over a month he is running around with his foster siblings. He’s still a little wobbly but getting better every day. Seems maybe he was hit by a car before finding his way to the shelter. He doesn’t let his past get him down. He’s dog friendly, cat friendly, and kid friendly. Due to his fragile back he would do best in a home with no stairs. He would also do best with older children who will handle him gently. He’s a healthy boy, and in great shape, he just needs a little extra caution to ensure he doesn’t hurt his back again. He is doing great with housetraining, but it is still a work in progress. As he’s getting steadier on his feet he’s getting it figured out. He loves playing with toys with a friend or all alone. He’s a super sweet boy with a personality as big as his ears.
