Every dog wants a loving home, and with such diversity in animal shelters, every willing family can find the right pet for them. Most people would pass by Rikki, a female chihuahua born with two club front feet, but one little girl thought she’d make the perfect pet.
The unnamed young lady in this video first saw Rikki on the computer, when her father was watching a rescue video posted on the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Facebook page. She recognized that the dog was different, but immediately wanted to take her home.
Despite Rikki’s deformity, she can get around and play many of the same games as other dogs (watch the video to see her in action). She has the same sweet face and loyal, affectionate nature that all dog lovers admire in their pets, and she sleeps with her owner every night. Everyone else might see that this dog is different, but Rikki herself doesn’t seem to notice.
