Shelter rescues dog in wheelchair

Dachshund has met lots of love

RuRu the dachshund has a new home.

The dog, which has been featured by local media, was paralyzed after a larger dog stepped on him, and he's unable to use his back legs.

RuRu gets around in a custom-made doggie wheelchair, and he'll now be using that apparatus to get around his new digs. His new owners are from Venice and will pick him up from the Naples Humane Society later this week.
