Nessie McNubbins is a Chihuahua who was born without her front legs due to neglectful breeding. Nessie ended up at a shelter and the workers immediately fell in love with this charming and spirited girl! The shelter visitors would come and watch her with amusement, but sadly, there were no takers for the disabled dog.
For a long time, Nessie wondered why she was never picked by any of the families. Over a period of 8 years, she was “adopted” 3 times, but the families always returned her within a few days. Nessie was tired of being “inadequate” and “unwanted”, but her fortunes changed when Theresa Loyacano stumbled upon her picture on social media!
Theresa knew Nessie belonged with her, and she reached out to the shelter and adopted this sweet girl. The shelter was nervous about the 2-legged Chihuahua settling in her new home. But this time, everything fell into place! Nessie was finally in her “real” forever home!
After years of rejection, Nessie celebrated her adoption by hopping around her new home like a kangaroo on her strong back legs! She shares her forever home with 2 disabled doggie siblings, and the trio has become the best of friends!
In this video, we see a glimpse of Nessie adorably moving about like a kangaroo! Mom says the Chihuahua has her own wheelchair, but she rarely uses it. Nessie is an independent girl who has accepted her shortcomings gracefully, and she is determined to live the best life ever!
