    Default Disabled puppy gets a home. So cute...

    Jasper, a disabled puppy surrendered to a rescue group in July, has drawn lots of attention and a slew of adoption applications.

    RALEIGH -- Jasper, a Schnauzer puppy who uses a canine wheel chair to get around, has finally found a home, according the the North Carolina Schnauzer Rescue.
    Karla Scales, who recently lost her Labrador, will adopt Jasper at a SchnOtoberfest 2009 at 12:30 p.m. today.
    Acording to the NCSR release, Scalse was approved after a lengthy approval process, including reference checks and a weekend sleepover.
    And, Jasper gets along with Scales' other Schnauzer, Glory.
    "They were happily playing within five minutes of meeting," Scales said.
    SchnOctoberfest will be from noon to 4 p.m. today at Baileyick Park in Raleigh. There will be raffels , games and a costume parade. For more information, go to www.ncschnauzers.org.

    So cute! I've always wondered- what makes some pups have to use a wheelchair vs those who can get around just fine on 2 legs? Anyone know?

    That little guy looks like he still has his back legs though.

    ETA- Answered my own question, at least in this instance. From one of the rescue's newsletters:


    Aww- poor lil guy- more pics:



    And it looks like he had to wear some sort of booties because he drags his legs? Awww.

    What a cute little guy! I believe that he's got a wonderful personality...it shows in his eyes.

    I'm so glad that he's found a home, the lady who will be adopting him is very lucky.

    Aw, bless his heart. I'm so glad he's found a great home.

    He's got intelligent eyes and like he has a lot of personality.
