Like any other dog, Oscar Madison loves to run and chase his canine pals at the park. But unlike other dogs, Oscar wheely gets around.
In place of his hind legs, Oscar makes his way around with the help of a wheelchair, and happily joins his fellow four-legged friends in a boundless display of endearing energy at a New York City park.
With his drooling grin and flopping ears, it’s hard to imagine this precious pup was ever abandoned, and then put on death row by animal services. But NY Pet-I-Care, Inc. found Oscar a happy home, and now, “he can run as fast as any other dog,” says his owner on Facebook.
By the looks of it, his two-wheel drive probably makes him the one to beat at the dog run!
