A lot of dogs from different parts of the world suffer from abuse and neglect. Some are even dumped like trash and left to die in the most horrible condition that you can possibly imagine. Sadly, some people are capable of such cruelty.
Thankfully, some kindhearted people try to rescue abused and neglected dogs and do whatever they can to give these dogs a second chance to live a happy life. Some rescued dogs even get a forever home in another country. Whenever I hear news about people rescuing dogs and giving them a chance to live the life that they deserve, it always warms my heart.
A Golden Retriever named Chi Chi was found in South Korea. She was in a terrible condition and was left to die inside a trash bag. Chi Chi had such horrible injuries in all her legs that all four paws had to be amputated. There wasn’t a lot that the vets could do but amputate all her paws due to severe infection. The vets also knew that even if Chi Chi survived, she would be living in pain for the rest of her life due to not having paws to cushion what’s left of her legs when walking.
In most cases, Chi Chi would be euthanized to end her suffering. However, a couple living in the US named Richard and Elizabeth saw Chi Chi’s story on YouTube and decided that Chi Chi deserved a second chance. The video showed Chi Chi smiling and wagging her tail despite her situation.
Richard and Elizabeth knew that Chi Chi was going to be their next dog. The couple reached out to the rescue group expressing their interest in adopting Chi Chi. The rescue group was so surprised that the couple was willing to care for Chi Chi even when they weren’t sure that she would be able to walk again. It didn’t matter to the couple. All they wanted was to give Chi Chi a loving forever home.
When Richard and Elizabeth saw another video showing Chi Chi walking, they knew at that moment that Chi Chi didn’t want to give up. The video strengthened the couple’s decision to adopt Chi Chi.
Chi Chi eventually made her way to the US. Richard and Elizabeth even went to meet her at the airport. When Chi Chi arrived, she didn’t have any prosthetics, which made walking painful. All she had were paddings cushioning her stumps, which were kept in place by bandages.
Richard and Elizabeth had prosthetics fitted for Chi Chi. It made her walk a lot better, and she’s now living a great life with her new family. Aside from having loving parents, Chi Chi also has two doggie siblings who are always there to support her. If you want to watch a video showing Chi Chi’s progress, click on the video below.
