CHICHIS AND ME INSPIRING CHIHUAHUA STORIES
MEET THREE STRAPPING LITTLE CHIHUAHUAS
I want you to meet, Kensi, Hetty and G. Three little Chihuahuas that were born with no front legs and dropped off at the MSPCA in Methuen, Massachusetts.
According to The Digital Journal, these puppies are being cared for by foster parents. They are working with them to strengthen muscles because it will help them be better able to use their back legs for mobility.
Kensi, the darker colored puppy seems to be the most curious while Hetty is timid and G is a little shy, but they are coming out of their shells.
The MSPCA cares for many animals that are suffering from severe trauma and serious illnesses, and those that need behavior rehabilitation.
They say that although the condition is rare, it is often the result of overbreeding ~ as in puppy mills, but that they can be rehabilitated and go on to live long, happy, healthy lives.
When they are about four months old, they hope to fit them with wheel carts that will support their upper body and will help them to be more mobile and to get around more normally.
In conclusion, Kensi, Hetty, and G just show us what I have always known, and that is that Chihuahuas are the sweetest and most resilient of dog breeds despite their tiny size, and can overcome some of the worst that life has to throw at them.
