Meet Dave, An Old Pit Bull With A Young Spirit
DaVinci, aka Dave on Life In The Dog House has been through a lot. As a 10-12 year old Pit Bull with neurological issues, he was found wandering the streets of Albany, NY. After being taken in by the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, Chris and Mariesa went there to get to know the people who work there -- little did they know they would be meeting one of their future dogs! DaVinci was in bad shape and the Hughes' went back to the shelter to adopt him in January of 2014, thinking it would be a "hospice stay" and he wouldn't be around for long. Under the Hughes' care, Dave is like a new dog!
Throughout Dave's stay with Chris and Mariesa, he's received a set of wheels for his hind legs after dealing with a spinal cord lesion, which prevents his back legs from communicating with his brain properly. By using this personalized cart, Dave will be able to develop stronger legs and eventually walk without wheels.
