    NEW ORLEANS (WGNO, CNN) - This little pooch's journey has not always been pampered as it looks.

    Meet Fabio ... a dog now in the care of the Florida Poodle Rescue.

    But before they can help him find a new home ... rescue workers brought him to New Orleans for some very specialized help.

    You see, Fabio's old owner cut off his paws so he would not climb a chain link fence and escape.

    Now, a team of orthopedic specialists are making molds of Fabio's hind legs and will then make him some doggie supports.
    Doctors say he'll soon be cruising down the sidewalk ... and hopefully cruising into a new, loving home.
