Kermit is a 6-month-old special-needs Doberman mix who was born without the use of his hind legs due to severe hip dysplasia. When Kermit was 4 months old, he was brought to a veterinarian by his owner, who asked that he be euthanized. But the vet fell in love with Kermit and his endearing personality, treated and healed his sores and outfitted him with his very own wheeled cart to get around in. Now all he needs is a home. Volunteers with Adopt-An-Angel say Kermit would be great in a home with children or serving as a therapy dog with children who have physical disabilities. ‘He doesn’t even know he has one,’ said Adopt-An-Angel volunteer Jill Jones. Kermit gets around well in his cart, can turn corners, go in reverse, run, play and fetch. He’s also good with other dogs.
