“Hope For Paws” received a call about a homeless three-legged Chihuahua who had been living in a shoebox for months. When the rescuers arrived on the scene, they were unprepared for the wee dog’s depressing plight, writes ilovemydogsomuch.
Even when it rained, the Chihuahua lacked the strength to move. When one of the rescuers touched her, she was completely soaked from a recent shower. The Chihuahua had been fed by a family for months, but she appeared to have other medical issues that rendered her critically ill.
The poor dog had always believed that no one would take care of her because she was sick and disabled. So when the rescuers stroked her with affection and promised to protect her, the dog’s eyes lit up, and she gratefully embraced the kind souls who came to save her!
The Chihuahua was named “Princess” by the rescuers, who promised to lavish her with love and care. She was given a cleansing bath at the shelter before being admitted to the hospital to be treated for her life-threatening anemia.
Princess is finally healed and ready for adoption after months of recovery. Even on three legs, she is a lively young lady who runs to her rescuers for hugs and cuddles! We hope Princess is able to find a forever home where she will be loved and pampered for the rest of her life!
