Meet happy-go-lucky LILO! This dude is a 1.5 year old Chihuahua mix! LILO is very low-energy, super chill and THE BEST companion. In his past, LILO was hit by a car which left him paralyzed from the waist down. He still wants to be a part of the action so whether you carry him over, he has to crawl or once he's got the hang of his fancy new wheelchair! He is perfectly content being by your side, laying on your lap or on soft blankies. He had his male parts removed to help reduce the amount of sores being created from dragging so he wears diapers full-time as he does not have control over his bladder. LILO's diaper needs to be changed frequently to avoid skin irritations. LILO's furever home will need to have someone available to him throughout the day! This means, someone home during the day or someone who can take him to work. LILO and his health will be a commitment for the rest of his life and potential adopters need to be aware of that. That being said, this boy has the biggest heart and is wanting to live life to the fullest he can. He enjoys being walked down the streets in your arms (eventually walking in his wheelchair), LOVES being smothered with love, laying in sun patches close to the window and TREATS OF COURSE! LILO needs a patient owner who has nothing but care and love to give him. He is very thankful for his second chance and needs a furever home that is as positive as he is! He likes other calm dogs and will likely be good with a cat. Also, he may need dental work in the future. ALSO ALSO, he has feelings in his toes and may benefit from rehab but his future is UNKNOWN. If you are interested in meeting him and learning more about a day-to-day life with him, please fill out an application.
