After her owner discovered that she was born without front legs, Daffodil the Chihuahua was abandoned in a cardboard box. She cried for days in that wet cardboard box on San Francisco’s streets. People would pick up the “adorable puppy” but when they discovered her birth defect, they would make a disgusted face and return her.
Daffodil’s plight was discovered by a young man, who scooped her up and took her to the local SPCA. The workers were initially dubious about the puppy’s chances of surviving. Daffodil, on the other hand, grew into a very affectionate and playful puppy within days of receiving love and care! The sweet little girl had no idea she was disabled and just wanted to be loved by her caregivers!
Daffodil’s spirited demeanor moved the workers, who resolved to look past her deformities and give her a fair chance at life. They even used a special cast to take measurements for the puppy’s own custom-fitted wheelchair!
This video depicts Daffodil’s memorable first ride in her tiny wheelchair. She stumbles and falls, but there’s no turning back once she gets back up. What a fighter! Olivia, one of Daffodil’s caregivers, has also come forward to be the spunky girl’s forever mom, according to the SPCA! Daffodil is having a great time being mommy’s little princess!
Watch Daffodil’s heartfelt story and her journey to find her own happy ending in the video below.
