Chico is a 4 year old chihuahua on a mission. Chico has had surgery for a luxating patella (trick knee) on both hind legs. His second surgery was not healing as good as the first, Chico would often favor his back left leg or not use it at all at times. He started coming to Dog Paddle last October to see if swimming would help. As you can see in the video Chico has made a full recovery and is quite the determined swimmer.

They say the single most important breed characteristic for Newfoundlands is their sweet temperament. Our friend Bear definitely lives up to that breed standard. Newfs are very powerful dogs with an affinity for water. For those reasons they are trained and used in water rescues. Here is Bear showing off taking Tally for a ride.
This is Hank. Hank is about 2 years old and a rescue dog from down South. Hank was hit by a car when he was found and has had two surgeries, luckily they were able to save his leg. He is very shy and nervous in new situations. He's been coming out of his shell and today he went skinny dipping (no life vest) for the first time. Way to go Hank!
