The Golden Retriever in this video is no ordinary dog. She’s a quadruple amputee who walks with four custom prosthetic legs. Her story began in total misery as she was a meat dog and was being held in a South Korean dog meat facility. She was tied up in a trash bag outside a meat market in early 2016. Her legs had been bound with wire, leaving bones and tissue exposed. The rescue group that found her was going to euthanize her but had second thoughts after rescuers saw her wagging tail and positive spirit. Instead, they decided to amputate all of her legs, and they gave her a name: Chi Chi, after a Christian motivational speaker from Australia, Nick Vujicic, who was born without limbs.
Chi Chi is now safe and happy after getting adopted by a couple from Phoenix. Chi Chi, a three-year-old golden retriever, is energetic and loving. She likes squeaky toys and carrots and cuddles with her owners, Elizabeth Howell, her husband, and their daughter. Chi Chi, who Howell says is a “blessing every day in our lives,” finished a therapy dog training course last month and now regularly visits a veteran’s center, an assisted-living facility and special-needs students at an elementary school.
