Jose's Story

In '06, a young male chihuahua was found alongside a road in San Jose. His pelvis was fractured. We can only assume he had been hit by something. He was taken to the San Jose Animal Shelter and when no one came looking for him, he was rescued and taken to Adobe Hospital where he received wonderful care by many of the doctors and technicians. In due course his pelvis healed and Jose regained the use of his back legs, but damage to nerves in his lower back have caused some incontinence. Acupuncture and chiropractic treatments helped too. He loves to have another dog to play with for his physical therapy and he doesn't mind a cat buddy. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm and is micro chipped. This happy little fella is looking for his forever family. Is yours his special family?
