This sweet boy came in after being in an accident that left him paralyzed and he needs some good love. He has recently gotten used to his new set of wheels and loves to show them off to new people! Uki has even shown a bit of improvident using his legs and a tail wag has been noticed here and there! We would love to get him into a foster home so we can have more eyes on him to see if there is any more strength gain in his legs!

Even after being in such a rough situation, he is still a big love bug and would love nothing more than to be around you and get lots of kisses and treats. He has never met a stranger and is friendly to everyone, and has been very gentle around the kiddos! He is pretty quiet and entertains himself with toys in his bed with his people aren't around. Although Uki is very brave in a lot of ways, roombas are the one thing that he still hasn't been able to face up to and he'll run to your for protection from the big, bad, scary machine. This sweet boy could make a great companion and easy house guest. Can you give this boy some extra love?
