A disabled and overweight Chihuahua is on the road to recovery after he was rescued from a crate on the side of a highway. Stanley was found locked in the crate on the side of Route 80 with cars speeding by. His rescuers at the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge say he was frozen from fear when he was discovered on the side of the road.
Stanley is believed to be 8 years old and weighs 21 pounds — more than twice what he should, rendering him immobile. All four of his legs have deformities so he is unable to walk. He is now in a foster home where he is receiving the love and attention he deserves. He will need to lose weight in order to be fitted for a wheelchair and has a long road ahead of weight loss, therapy and medical care.
