Joey was born without his two front legs. He is a spunky, year-old chihuahua mix. He came to Vintage Pet Rescue, our newest rescue partner, needing a little extra support to get around.

Vet Visit

The vet gave Joey an examination and determined that he was in good health overall. During his examination, he had basic vetting, including bloodwork and neutering.

Joey then began his mobility journey! He was taken to Eddie’s Wheels to be measured for a custom set of wheels.

Once his measurement was complete, he got his wheels! They took some getting used to…

But with some practice and a little encouragement from his team, Joey slowly got the hang of it!


Joey is described as “an absolute LOVE and always the center of attention,” by the staff at Vintage Pet. “We took him into our rescue at 3 months old and he was a favorite from the beginning. He does not know that he is different. He can do anything he sets his mind to and makes everyone around him smile.”

Puppy Bowl

Not only is the 15/10 Foundation sponsoring his medical costs for life, but Joey is also competing in the Puppy Bowl on Team Ruff! You can see him in the big game Sunday, February 12 on Animal Planet.
