A female golden retriever, with legs bound by cutting wires, was left in a trash bag outside a meat market early last year.
After she was found by a rescue group, it was decided that she’d be euthanized, considering the damage done to her legs.
However, rescuers were surprised by the dog’s positive spirit, so they ended up amputating all four of her legs in order to save her life.
Chi Chi, now three-years-old, lives with her owner Elizabeth Howell and Howell’s husband and daughter in Phoenix, Arizona.
Once she recovered and received special prosthetic legs, Chi Chi began to make a difference in her community.
