LOUSIVILLE, OH - A paralyzed dog is moving to a new home in Colorado Wednesday.
Caesar, a German Shepard mix, was taken in by the Stark County Humane Society in Ohio after getting hit by a car earlier this year.
The back half of his body is paralyzed and has no use of his hind legs.
“Caesar just wants to go home and play,” said Jackie Godbey, assistant director of the Stark County Humane Society. “He loves children, he loves dogs, he loves to chase balls, sticks."
Caesar's new owner is a retired veteran in Colorado Springs.
Officials at the shelter said Caesar will live in a gated community with neighbors who all plan to pitch in to care for the dog.
Through community donations in Ohio, Caesar received a cart that helps him be mobile. He also received chiropractic care and veterinarian check-ups.
“He definitely wants to be with someone at all times,” said Shetzi Powers, Caesar’s caretaker and an employee at the shelter. “He’s a very loving and caring dog.”
