The comeback was greater than the setback for Stanley the nine-year-old Chihuahua.

In May, Stanley was found abandoned in a crate on the side of Route 80 and was taken in by the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge for rehabilitation. He weighed 21 pounds, more than twice the average Chihuahua, and could not move on his own due to deformities in all four of his legs.
