Daffodil the Chihuahua was found abandoned in a soggy cardboard box. The puppy’s rescuer realized that Daffodil, who was born without front legs, would need specialized care and contacted the San Francisco SPCA. Who could have looked at that sweet little face and choose to leave her alone, scared, and helpless?

With the help of OrthoPets, a company that specializes in animal prosthetics, Daffodil got a shiny new set of wheels. Now there’s no toy she can’t fetch! And here’s the best part of the story — when an OrthoPets employee realized that this darling puppy had not yet found a family, she flew all the way from Colorado to adopt her! We know she’ll be happy in her new forever home.

If you ever come across an abandoned animal, please contact your local rescue center. Little Daffodil is just one shining example of how compassion can completely transform an animal’s life.
