Chi Chi did not have a very good start to life at all. Being born in South Korea, and intended to be butchered and sold as meat on an open market is to be sentenced to a terrible fate. However, Chi Chi has an indomitable spirit, and is one resilient dog. Not only has she survived a quadruple leg amputation, but she is still all smiles, and brimming with love to give.
When the California-based Animal Rescue, Media and Education found Chi Chi, someone had bound up her legs with wires so tight, that it was cutting into her flesh, and the wrapped up in a garbage bag, and carelessly tossed behind a dumpster. The dumpster was behind a dog meat dealer in South Korea, and this poor dog as in terrible health.
When she was finally brought to the United States, she was seen by medical health specialists right away. The situation was pretty grim for Chi Chi, and she ended up having to have all four of her paws removed because of how much damage the wire had done to her. She was malnourished and had an infection that spread throughout her body. It took a very long time, but surgeons managed to save her life.
Her recovery was very touch and go for the first little while after surgery. However, Chi Chi is filled with a spirit that simply cannot be broken, and her will to live is indescribably strong. She is a force to be reckoned with. It wasn’t long until Chi Chi was really getting better, and the work of getting her ready for adoption was the task at hand. She survived things that most would not, and her loving and sweet nature landed her a forever home.
Chi Chi now resides with a new family in Arizona, and they have promised to love her and keep her happy and safe for the rest of her life. She’s doing very well, and even has four new legs, specially designed to fit her and help her get around more easily. Chi Chi is an excellent example of what can happen when one decides that they absolutely refuse to quit. The word is simply NOT in their vocabulary.
