Benjamin, a Basset Hound, in a K-9Cart.com dog wheelchair is an inspiration to both handicapped pets and people and is definitely deserved of top dog honors. Benjamin's story starts in an airplane hangar in Taipei, Taiwan, where he was abandoned.
He was a typical black and tan Basset hound with those big brown eyes. However, in Taiwan, black spotted dogs are bad luck. Paralyzed presumably from a car accident, the Basset was abandoned with a slew of other dogs. Guardian Angel Basset Rescue (GABR) received a call in January 2008 and 15 hours later "Benjamin" arrived at O'Hare airport.
Larry Little, GABR's Chairman, met Benjamin at the airport and immediately thought of Mickey Manos, who had previously cared for a disabled dog. On February 11, 2009, Mickey picked up Benjamin and then the adventure began.
