Meet Thaddeus, a true survivor with an incredible spirit. Thaddeus came to us in dire straits, his body emaciated, and his soul scarred by a tragic past.

He had endured months of life on the unforgiving streets, but Thaddeus persevered with unwavering resilience. Despite the odds stacked against him, Thaddeus is an extraordinary dog.

He faces the world with two crumbled spinal discs, yet he moves forward with a remarkable spirit. His spinal walking is a testament to his indomitable will. He has retained his bowel and bladder function, and our trusted neurology experts confirm there is no pain.

Thaddeus is now in search of the loving forever home he so rightly deserves, a place where he can experience the “Good Life.” Thaddeus is approximately 5-6 years old and weighs 55 pounds.

He’s a social butterfly who gets along wonderfully with other kids, and dogs. He’s a natural flirt and a bit of a clown, promising endless moments of joy. However, he’s not a fan of feline companions and would do best in a cat-free environment.

Thaddeus is housebroken, well-behaved, and not prone to destructive habits. But there are some specific criteria for his new home. Due to his restrictions, Thaddeus requires a single-story house where he will not have to climb stairs. He’s like the little engine that could, always eager to tackle challenges, even when it might not be best for him. If you have the heart and home that Thaddeus deserves, please consider giving him the chance at a brighter future.
