This cutie is Francis. He's an 11-month-old Shepard mix. Francis was abandoned and separated from his mother and litter mates at just six weeks old because his hind legs were paralyzed. He requires the use of a doggie wheelchair, but with therapy Francis has developed limited use of his hinds legs.

His condition hasn't affected his spirits. He gets around very well and is extremely friendly to humans, other dogs, and cats. Francis does require physical help, but he's aware of his bowels and urine and is able to let you know when he needs to go. He comes from New Life Animal Rescue in Marlton, New Jersey.
