VALLEY VIEW, Ohio — Two puppies who had a rough start to their lives are all healed up and ready for adoption at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter.

Chip, an 8-month-old chow chow/hound mix, had hip surgery due to an accident but has been with a foster family for the past few weeks recovering. He is still learning to use his left hind leg, and he’s gaining strength in it, but it doesn’t slow him down at all.

He gets along with other cats, dogs, horses — even donkeys! And he has an awesome “bromance” going with another pup who is recovering from an injury.

Pat is a 9-month-old lab mix who came to the shelter with a broken pelvis. After surgery to repair the damage, he went to a foster home to heal.

He’s very loving, and is a kind and gentle boy.
