Higgins and boy in Wheelchair

My wife and I were volunteering at National Mill Dog Rescue in Colorado on Christmas Day in 2011, and we met and instantly fell in love with Higgins.

We adopted him that day.

The story we were told was that he had been hit by a car when he was 4 months old and was paraplegic due to the spinal damage. He is just the most awesome dog ever!

He loves to run and walk, several miles a day if he can, and he loves to play fetch with his tennis balls. Here is Higgins with my lovely wife Ashleyann during a walk, talking with a neighborhood friend who shares something in common.
