ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — A local dog shelter is looking to help a special dog in need.

Sadie's Safe Harbor Canine Rescue in Orchard Park helps find homes for dogs, including one named Chico.

Chico is a one-year-old dog who has been in foster care for eight months and has yet to find a forever home. He has a condition called megaesophagus, which means he has some dietary restrictions and needs to eat from a high chair.

He and his foster owner, Jackie Richir, joined 7 News anchors Katie Morse and Ed Drantch Thursday morning on Second Cup to talk about his life story and how he's up for adoption.

Richir says he is a sweet dog who is well-behaved and loves snuggling.

Chico's boarding facility is offering to cover the adoption fees and Camp Bow Wow is offering five days of daycare for free.
