Nessie is a sweet Chihuahua who was born without her front legs due to careless breeding.
People can be really cruel and judgmental towards poor animals with special needs. Hearing such tragic stories always breaks our hearts.
Every year, thousands of puppies are abandoned in shelters in the hope of finding a family that will give them a second chance. Unfortunately, this can be a bit more difficult for pets with special needs. Nessie McNubbins is a cute Chihuahua who was born without both of her front legs.
Nessie lives in the city of Katy in Texas, United States.
She was a little different from the other dogs, but she had so much love to give and faced each day with so much energy and joy. Because of a genetic disorder, Nessie was missing her anus. This is usually the result of irresponsible breeding practices.
Other than missing her front legs, Nessie is in good health.
Some people don’t take the necessary steps to care for future puppies and when a “different” one like Nessie is born, they just abandon them. The cute Chihuahua’s first years were difficult because he couldn’t find a family. Nobody wanted to take care of a puppy like her.
Nessie was adopted three times, but was eventually returned.
Finally, Theresa Locayano, as soon as she saw Nessie’s story on social networks, immediately fell in love with her.
Teresa had no experience with special needs dogs, but something inside her said she was meant to help the little girl. She arrived at the shelter determined to adopt her, and within hours, Nessie and Teresa appeared to be best friends.
“When I saw her I thought she must be very scared to have spent so much time in this shelter. She’d been returned several times, and it was past time for someone to assist her.’
This time, Nessie found her definitive family, one day Theresa contacted the rescuers and left them speechless, she wanted to adopt other puppies like Nessie to give them a life full of love.
After adopting Nessie, Loyacano realized how much she loves helping dogs in need. She adopted a second dog, Frankie Lou, a little more than a year later. Frankie Lou is a more mature dog who was born with the same condition as Nessie. Loyacano adopted Frankie Lou as a puppy, so the family had to watch him grow up and learn to walk on two legs.
Less than a year after adopting Frankie Lou, Loyacano adopted another two-legged dog named Ali. Ali is a tiny Chihuahua that Loyacano cared for briefly and fell in love with. She couldn’t resist the adorable little puppy and adopted Ali as a permanent member of her family. All three dogs now have each other. They might not have found their forever homes if it hadn’t been for Loyacano’s kind heart. But they are now living the dream!
This is how Nessie met her little siblings and they have become a happy pack and love to play and run around the house asking their mother for hugs.
Nessie was adopted when she was eight years old.
Theresa contacted several vets and they designed a special chair for Nessie. However, the sweet chihuahua has so much energy and determination that he is more comfortable jumping and walking.
It took a long time to find a family and now she is ready to make the most of every minute of joy.
Nessie has a very close friendship with her brother Frankie Lou.
Many people think twice about adopting a puppy with special needs. Indeed, it is a delicate matter, but the love received in return is immense. They are furries who have come to teach us a valuable lesson about the importance of assisting those in need.
After years of rejection, Nessie celebrated her adoption by moving to her new home like a kangaroo on her powerful hind legs! She lives with her two disabled brothers in her forever home, and the three have become best friends!
