It's not often that a disabled Dachshund looking for a home gets picked up by the local news service, which in turns gets picked up by CNN - RuRu must be pretty special. Excerpt from WBBH out of southwest Florida:
"He's a very active dog, very friendly, loves everybody. Loves to jump up and down on his wheelchair as much as he can," said Michael Simonik of the Humane Society of Naples.
RuRu is paralyzed in the lower half of his little body. He was injured while living with a Rottweiler in LaBelle.
"They were playing one day and the Rottweiler accidentally stepped on the rear end of RuRu causing the damage," said Simonik.
The 4 year old daschund was too much to take care of, so his family put him in a shelter.
He was rescued by the Humane Society of Naples, a no-kill shelter specializing in dogs with special needs.
One week in and RuRu is making friends but still looking for a family.
"I think his personality alone will get him a home," said Jeanne Rivera of Naples.
