Disabled Puppies With Lots of Love to Give

ChihuahuasCarmen, Pablo and Venus are 4-month-old Chihuahua siblings and they all are adorable and born without front legs. They are at a Long Island shelter and workers say that they are happy and healthy and are learning to walk on their hind legs. The three pups were dropped off by a backyard breeder at a local ASPCA. The shelter is talking to a few companies that would create custom-designed dog wheelchairs for the three, since currently, there are no wheelchairs that are designed for front legs. Good luck Carmen, Pablo and Venus!

    Wonderful to see these diff(erent)-abled dogs looking so happy and relaxed. And thankfully there are people in the world who would love a dog regardless of its differences. Dogs (and cats) are geniuses in the ways they find to cope and to get around. Luckily, these dogs are so tiny and can be carried around! Most chihuahuas don’t use their legs as much as they use their pet parents’ arms!

    Definitely good luck to the three pups!

    Well, again, i see little for the FDA or USDA to test for. Why even fund them at all? just let the megacorps dump all their poisonous waste in the soil/air/water/food. what could possibly be the harm in that?

    poorly quoted Twain:
    When you get there, just remember that Heaven goes by favor rather than by merit. If it went by merit your dog would get in and you would not.

    What a trio of precious babies. I would take all three! It was never intentional, but almost all of my furbabies I’ve ever owned have had some form of disability.

    Cuz he works for one of the big pet food power houses. He’s protected.

    A doggie wheelchair? Yes, such a device has been invented.

    “Scooter” was/is a similarly disabled Chihuahua and the mascot at my former vet’s (LA Central Animal Hospital, Los Angeles). Kept by the wonderful vet–Dr. Simon. Scooter had fans that would stop by just to visit her, and one of them created a little wheelchair/cart. But she preferred to “scoot” around the vet hospital using her back legs. She liked to inspect new arrivals and loudly announcing her dominion over all. (My cats did NOT appreciate this.) I moved out of the area and haven’t been back for several years, so don’t know if Scooter is still around. But if you want to know more, check with LA Central Animal Hospital.

    what happened to the disabled chihuahuas, did they all find homes. I applied on behalf of a school for disabled children, but never heard anything. Jack dogfadr@ameritech.net

    Birth defects occur in all creatures. Its no more the breeders fault than it would be a mothers fault if she gave birth to a handicapped child. Some things are in Gods hands
