PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A paralyzed dog found abandoned recently near Canyon Lake has a new family.

The Arizona Humane Society says Angel was adopted Wednesday after his inspiring story aired.

After arriving at the Humane Society, two employees fitted the 2-year-old German shepherd with a makeshift wheelchair.

But even though he was paralyzed from the waist down, Angel was able to get around in the wheelchair and became eligible for adoption.

The Humane Society even waived the adoption fees in exchange for a new home with a compassionate owner.

Several calls came into the Humane Society interested in adopting the special needs dog.

Angel's special day came Wednesday as he was adopted to a new home in Gilbert.
