Fortunately, kind people learnt about Gordon's sad story. The doggie was taken care of by a local volunteer organization that provided him with a special wheelchair supporting his hind legs. Then they started looking for permanent owners for him. One day Wendy Wickersham and Jim Larson from the United States saw his photos. They already had a dog, but they couldn't stop thinking about Gordon.

Soon afterwards the family decided that Gordon should be with them! They arranged for him to be flown from Taiwan to the U.S., and they prepared the house so he could move around easily in his wheelchair. That's how Gordon got loving owners. According to Gordon's new owners, it was love at first sight. "We thought we were adopting him to help him, and really, he has given us so much joy and laughter that I feel like we could never repay that to him," the owners say.
