Vets Wanted To Euthanize Puppy Without Front Legs, But This Guy Stepped In

Meet Nubby, the doggie with no front legs. Vets thought he wouldn’t make it. “His siblings were pushing him out of the way. He would have perished,” Lou Robinson, Nubby’s foster mom, told The Dodo. “He came home with me.” Robinson is the founder of an animal rescue group called Warriors Educate About Rescue. She and her husband learnt about all the ways they could improve Nubby’s chances of survival.

“Day three came and went, day seven, day 10, day 16 and Nubby thrived. He thrived!” says Robinson. “His eyes opened, his ears developed, he found his sounds, smells and voice.”

Then, Nubby stopped pooping and started sneezing. He was blowing milk bubbles out of his nose and didn’t want to eat. They rushed him to the vet who confirmed the puppy not only had pneumonia, but also an “esophageal abnormality.” “He had a pocket form in his esophagus that was trapping his milk,” says Robinson.

Now the doggie is back with his foster parents, and they are taking it day by day. He just turned 5 weeks old, and his favourite thing is snuggles with his dad. “As long as he has a chance at quality of life, we will fight to give him that chance.”

Meet Nubby, the doggie with no front legs who was thought not to make it…

“His siblings were pushing him out of the way. He would have perished”

“He came home with me… “Day three came and went, day seven, day 10, day 16 and Nubby thrived”

“His eyes opened, his ears developed, he found his sounds, smells and voice”

Then a crisis hit. It turned out the pooch had pneumonia and “esophageal abnormality”

“He had a pocket form in his esophagus that was trapping his milk”

Now the doggie is back with his foster parents, and they are taking it day by day

He just turned 5 weeks old, and his favourite thing is snuggles with his dad

“As long as he has a chance at quality of life, we will fight to give him that chance”

The puppy is “very happy, needy and rotten already… Life finds a way”

As long as the blind esophageal pouch can be attached to his stomach & repaired it seems like this wonderful pup & his family have a good chance to pull him through Bless you for saving such a sweet little soul. You're in my prayers.

It is rewarding, heartbreaking, joyous, and devastating caring for a special needs pet. My experience doing do was the greatest joy and most heartbreaking loss of my life. Here is wishing Nubby all of the joy and none of the heartache!

he can live a long and fun life. He can be fitted for a wheel chair made from PCV piping that grows as he does. I see he's being fed in the upright position. It will be a bit challenging to feed him solid foods but this couple can do it.....thank you for giving this little guy his big chance....

Good job. They might be able to fit prosthetics on him when he is an adult. If his nubs grow more that would be even better.

He's so cute! I would definitely adopt him too. Does he have long to live or are his health issues being handled with medication?
