(WWBT) - Two dogs from Virginia will be featured in a calendar for disabled dogs.

The 2020 Walkin’ Pets calendar will include two of the commonwealth’s cutest residents - Harley Quinn, of Greenbackville, and Champ, of Elkwood.

Harley Quinn is a boxer who was fitted with a wheelchair after being diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor when she was 3 years old. She was only given a few months to live after the diagnosis and died earlier this year.

Champ is a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois who survived distemper and moved to Virginia after being abandoned in a ditch in Texas.

He also has a connection to Richmond. A few weeks ago, Richmond Animal Care and Control said a paralyzed puppy they named Roo was picked up in the city. The woman who owns Champ drove down to Richmond and adopted Roo.

Remember that adorable little paralyzed puppy with the giant ears we asked for your good thoughts about last week? Welp....

The dogs were chosen as part of a contest that saw several disabled animals, including cats, goats and a chicken all vying for the honor.

All proceeds from the calendar will be donated to the Handicapped Pets Foundation to provide wheelchairs for disabled and injured animals. The calendar costs $12.95 and can be ordered by calling 1-888-253-0777.
