An abused pit bull rescued from California now lives in Portland, and has a specially designed wheelchair to help him get around.

"London” is named for the Olympic Games. He was abused and left with two fractured front legs.
  
Treatment was delayed too long, so his legs had to be removed about a month ago.
  
Mechanics from a Northwest company called MotoCorsa made him a Ducati-inspired custom dog wheelchair for free.
 
Amanda Giese is London's new mom. She says people from all over the world have been following his story online.

"We've seen people here today from Nevada, so far, California Crescent City Canada Montana... so we've had people travel from all over to come and meet him,” she said.

An event in London's honor raised money for other special needs dogs. Donations to Team London will go toward providing surgeries and wheelchairs to dogs in need. Make a donation at www.weareteamlondon.org.
