CRANSTON, R.I. (CBS) — A partially paralyzed dog in Rhode Island is looking for a forever home. Courage is a 9 month-old puppy transported to New England from Mississippi.

Her back legs are paralyzed as a result of abuse she sustained when she was just a few months old. She has to wear a diaper but she gets around just fine in a wheelchair that even has ski attachments.
