Vets planned to euthanize this sweet puppy that does not have front legs, but this man stepped in and saved his life!
Meet Nubby, the puppy that has no front legs. Vets thought that he would not make it at alll. “His brothers and sisters were pushing him out of their way. He probably would perished,” Lou Robinson, Nubby’s foster mom, says. “He went back home with me”. Robinson is the founder of one animal rescue group the Warriors Educate About Rescue. She and her husband learned about all the ways they could improve Nubby’s chances of survival and his quality of life.
“Day three came and went, then day seven, day 10, day 16 and Nubby just thrived. He simply thrived” says Robinson. “His eyes opened, also his ears developed, he found his sounds, smells and also voice too”.
Then, Nubby suddenly stopped pooping and also started sneezing. He was blowing milk bubbles out of his little nose and did not want to eat anything. They rushed him to the vets who confirmed that the baby puppy not only had pneumonia, but also an “esophageal abnormality “ too. He had a small pocket form in his esophagus that was trapping his milk,” says Robinson.
Now the baby puppy is back with his foster parents, and they are taking it slowly day by day. He also just turned 5 weeks, and his favorite thing in the world is to snuggle with his human dad. “As long as he has a chance at quality of life, we will fight for him to give him that chance”.
We hope that everything turns out good for this sweet baby boy, he is adorable and really loved too. He is also a fighter and we hope that he makes it. Even though he has no front legs he is still really beautiful and his face melts the hardest hearts.
