Wheelchair Dog Has Lost Its Owner

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A desperate search is on for the owners of a partially paralyzed, Schnauzer mix dog that was found by a Good Samaritan in the northwest area of Miami-Dade.

The 7-year old gray, male is a special needs dog. It is paralyzed in the hind legs and is assisted by the use of a wheelchair like device.

The dog which has been named “Huggies” has been examined by the Miami-Dade County Animal Services veterinary staff and is deemed to be in fair condition.

But officials helping care for the dog said Huggies does need special attention and lots of love.
