Poor Dogs

Puppy without front legs makes everyone fall in love at the shelter by snuggling with their stuffed animals

For this chihuahua, his body may be a little different from the other furry ones in the shelter, but that has not been enough reason to stop running and playing at all times of the day. His name is Joey and at only 3 months old he has taught a lesson in perseverance to everyone who knows his story.

The furry one lives with dozens of adoptive brothers in Vintage Pet Rescue , a shelter for elderly and disabled furry ones, located in Rhode Island (United States). But although the chihuahua is missing its two front legs, that has not been an impediment to moving forward.

The puppy was born that way due to a genetic condition, so in his short life he has already learned to defend himself with only his hind legs and guess what? Well, Joey is quite happy.

Kristen Peralta, founder of Vintage Pet Rescue, is delighted with the chihuahua because, although she knows that it is a breed with a lot of energy, Joey surpasses all the dogs she has come across as a rescuer.

“Joey is one of the happiest dogs we have ever met. He doesn’t know that he is different and he loves to play with toys, wrestle with the other dogs, enjoy his wading pool and get cuddles,” he said.

For Joey there is nothing wrong with his body, he accepts himself and enjoys life as it has touched him. Mind you: anything this chihuahua can’t accomplish, he’ll surely try a thousand and one times before giving up.

Joey has an infectious personality and Kristen is privileged to have known him. That is why he appreciates the cooperation of the first refuge that he thought of her to be her protector.

This pup first fell into the hands of CT Humane Society volunteers , who felt he would be better off with Kristen and her team.

At Vintage Pet Rescue, Joey is the most spoiled. At his young age he has a lot of energy, but he is also sleepy and spoiled. In fact, he has a whole collection of stuffed animals at his disposal both to play with and to cuddle up with whenever he wants.

The chihuahua has several favorite toys but a plush llama seems to be his favorite. He turns to her every time it’s time to take her nap.

Although he sometimes copies the attitudes of the larger dogs in the group, Joey is still a puppy and that is why seeing him snuggled up with his stuffed animals is so endearing.

“He’s still a puppy, so he plays hard and then looks around for a nap. Joey loves to snuggle up with his big stuffed animals and take a long nap…He loves his toys!” Peralta said.

Caring for this chihuahua pleases Peralta, who sees him as an example of perseverance. For the animalist, her main motive is to help him and make sure he doesn’t get into trouble.

“Joey can walk up stairs, get on the couch and pretty much get anywhere he wants to go. It’s really amazing to see him move so well. Nothing stops it,” he said.

Currently, the chihuahua is waiting for a wheelchair that will help him move more easily. The chair will be made by the team at Eddie’s Wheels for Pets . After he has his chair and receives his castration, the furry will be ready to be adopted and Peralta is very excited about this process.

Although it looks different, the attitude of this chihuahua is contagious and will surely make many families fall in love. Let’s trust that his caregiver chooses the best for him.
