Despite his condition, Eddie was the happiest dog from the very beginning, and never let his hardships stand in the way of his beautiful personality. On the day he was scheduled to be put down, Second Chance Rescue NYC was able to pull Eddie from the shelter.
"Eddie is always smiling and he is a wonderful example of finding and maintaining joy in the face of what most would see as adversity," Kelcy Kimmerer of Second Chance Rescue NYC told The Dodo. "He LOVES life and everyone in it."
Eddie was taken to Camp SCR, a private boarding home through Second Chance Rescue NYC for dogs who need a little extra attention and care. There, Eddie was given one of the greatest gifts of all: a wheelchair.
