Chiquita is a disabled dog rescued from the streets of Lima, Peru. Both of Chiquita’s legs are paralyzed. She used to have a wheelchair, but some scum stole it from her. What kind of sick and evil human being would do that to a defenseless and paralyzed little dog?
Because Chiquita had no more wheelchair to help her walk, she just drags her body to get around. It’s the most heartbreaking thing you’ll ever see.
Watch the video below and you’ll see the condition poor Chiquita was in when she was found. You can see this poor thing dragging her body on the street.
But there’s still hope for little Chiquita. A group of kindhearted strangers got together to help her. They brought Chiquita to the Charterhouse Vet Clinic where she went through some tests and treatments.
It turns out that not only is she has paralyzed in both hind legs, she also has scabies, mange and possibly a tumor and some other disease. She is in desperate need of our help.
The kind people who rescued Chiquita set up a fundraiser for her. But funds they have in Peru are limited. They are hoping that there’s a rescue organization in North America or Europe who can help Chiquita get well and find a forever home. She may have a home waiting for her in the United States, but that is uncertain. She needs to get well first before she can make the journey.
You can help Chiquita get better by donating at her YouCaring page. Your donation, no matter how little, will surely be a big help to this poor little dog.
