Meet handsome smooth chocolate and tan 'Noodles,' who hails from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Three years ago, he herniated a disc, but now the agile 7-year-old has adapted to life beautifully thanks to his doggie wheelchair.
"He got so used to it. He's so mobile he'll back up, he'll go under stuff and turn around and spin. He goes out there and chases cats in the neighborhood," said George Bauer, Noodles' owner.
Before finding a new ride, the Bauers thought they may have to put Noodles down.
