PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

With a brisk outlook on life, a perpetual tail wag and an adorable underbite, you’d never know that Derby was once down on his luck.

The former stray found himself lying in the road with a broken leg after being hit by a car and was rescued by Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™.

Veterinarians were able to save his leg by performing a complicated surgery. After a month of recovering, the brindle bulldog hasn’t skipped a beat.

After a long morning walk, Derby becomes a mellow, laid-back couch potato who’s content to spend the rest of his day vegging out on the couch watching Netflix.

He’s a great traveler and enjoys car rides to the park.

Although he’s not one for crunching numbers, he’d be happy to serve as a tail-wagging door greeter if your employer will allow it.
