Rocket was found on the streets of Miami with his back two legs paralyzed. The 12-year-old dog was placed in a rescue with little hope.
Most people don’t adopt senior dogs after all, especially those with disabilities. But one woman saw this spunky little fellow and just had to have him!
No one knows exactly where he came from, but with his demeanor they figure he had to have been someone’s pet at one point.
Rocket is now going blind, but he’s in the perfect place with a family who is used to caring for older dogs in need.
In fact, he has a doggy brother named Joey who is also blind! Rocket sure is unique—he’s half Pomeranian, a quarter Yorkie, and the rest Chihuahua, Pekingese, and Shih Tzu—but this family thinks he’s just perfect!
