If you ever have a dream that you think is completely impossible, think again. This story about Chi Chi, an abandoned dog who had to get all of his paws amputated and is now becoming a therapy dog, will never make you think a dream is impossible again.
It's time to meet Chi Chi, the dog who persevered over everything!
Chi Chi had a rough start in life.
Chi Chi was found in a trash bag in South Korea near a black market dog meat trader. All of her legs were bound with wires and she was barely breathing, according to rescuers. After Chi Chi was rushed to the hospital, the hospital workers decided that the only way to save Chi Chi was to amputate all four of her paws.
Chi Chi loves life.
Chi Chi's quadruple amputation did not dampen her spirits. Just a day after her surgery, she began playing with toys. The group that rescued Chi Chi, Animal Rescue, Media & Education (also known as ARME), began posting Chi Chi's story on social media. The Howell family in the United States were taken with her story. They expressed interest in adopting Chi Chi. After a couple months in Seoul, Chi Chi was transported to Los Angeles. Amazing people from all over the world have donated to Chi Chi's fund on ARME's website to help get her the prosthetics, medications and physical therapy.
Chi Chi's new life in Los Angeles.
