Check out this heartwarming video about a very special dog named Chance, and his owner Michael. Chance was hit by a car and left on the side of the road to die. Someone took him to a shelter, and that is where his now-owner Michael met him. As a result of being hit by a car, Chance lost functioning of his back legs and appears to have lost control over his bowels. Chance was going to be euthanized. When Michael met Chance, he felt compelled to adopt him because he believed that no one else would want him due to his paralysis. Chance would require special care because his back legs no longer worked. Chance’s limitations did not deter Michael!
