We may call dogs our best friends, our companions for life and one of the most selfless creatures on this planet, but there are some people who think otherwise. Not everyone appreciates these loyal creatures for the gorgeous beings they are. In fact, humans can be cruel and insensitive and we have proven it time and again.But in certain parts of the world there are people who treat them as delicacies rather than a friend or a pet. They may have many reasons for doing it, but none of them justify the cruelty that these poor, helpless creatures are subjected to.
Although they have earned worldwide revulsion from animal rights groups, it seems that there is still a long way to go before these farms can be abolished. While some dogs manage to dodge these deadly farms, some are left trapped in there and have to pay the ultimate price. Though rescuers try their best, these dogs aren’t always found in very good shape by the time help arrives.
Though the rescuers still haven’t figured how she ended up on the farm, the condition she was found in is a testimony to the horrors she went through while she was there.

But that didn’t happen. Instead, it cut off the circulation to her paws, causing them to necrotize. Chi Chi was no longer a viable food source candidate for the farmers so she was thrown away in a garbage bag.
She was quickly found by a dog-rescue organization called Dogs in the Dark. They found her just in time and brought her back to the sanctuary. Unfortunately, they were unprepared to face the damage caused by Chi Chi’s captors. All four of Chi Chi’s paws were damaged beyond repair and had to be amputated immediately in order to keep the infection from spreading.
Her surgery was a complete success and she recovered fairly quick. So it wasn’t long before her charming and loving personality began to shine through again. Eventually, the little angel was ready to experience her first flight on board a plane to California.
There she was able to feel grass for the very first time and her magnetic personality quickly touched many lives. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she found a new home in Arizona in less than no time. Her new family, the Howells, were not planning on adopting another rescue dog, but they couldn’t resist adopting Chi Chi. Plus, they thought that it would be a nice addition to the family of three other rescue dogs they already had.
They wanted to make their lives more accessible for their new pooch as her ability to get around had been hindered by her severed paws. Also, the Howells wanted to give Chi Chi the ability to get back what she had lost in the form of prosthetic legs.
Though they knew that she would never have the same mobility as a dog with four functional legs, they knew that Chi Chi would be able to run and play for possibly the first time in her life with special prosthetics. So they went ahead and spoke to a prosthetic specialist and raised $3,000 to help Chi Chi out and give her a better chance at life.
