Rescue group helps 'Batman' get around

Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Batman lost the use of his back legs after being hit by a car.

Cats may have nine lives -- but one dog is getting a real second chance at life thanks to an East Bay dog rescue group.

Batman, a Formosan mountain dog was crushed by a car in Taiwan and left for dead. When the group Love & Second Chances heard about him, they raised money to fly him to San Ramon.

He's undergone operations and is in therapy. Despite having a broken back, Batman's foster parents say he's very mobile. To make his life better, they even outfitted him with braces for his legs.

The agency is looking for someone to adopt him.
