Dogs born with missing legs are often not given a chance to live. They are usually put on the kill list because they believed that the dog wouldn’t be able to enjoy living a healthy dog life. In addition to that, people also know that taking care of dogs with disabilities is costly.
Thankfully, there are good and kind people out there who look beyond the dog’s disability. These people love and care for dogs with disabilities and treat them like a healthy dog. These people are truly amazing because they provide these dogs with the best care and love that they needed.
Deuce is a chihuahua born without his two front legs. He was scheduled to be put down to sleep because he is different. His previous owners cannot handle dogs with disabilities; that is why he was surrendered at the shelter.
The Evergreen Animal Protective League heard about Deuce’s condition, and they wanted to help him. They looked for a family that will truly love and accepts Deuce despite his disability.
Luckily, a couple who is experienced in taking care of dogs with disabilities heard about Deuce, and instantly, they took him in.
Watch this video to know more about Deuce’s story:
Ken Rogers and his wife Melissa are now Deuce’s new parents. Ken and Melissa are used to taking care of special needs dogs as they had KanDu ten years ago. Just like Deuce, KanDu is also missing his front legs.
Ken loves Deuce so much! He would always carry him, and he makes sure that Deuce won’t hurt his chest from constant crawling. He would put on clothes on Deuce to protect his chest from rough surfaces.
Ken is honored to be given a chance to take care of Deuce. He promised that he would provide Deuce the best dog live that he truly deserves.
