Tiny Chihuahua Hit by Car Gives Birth to Miracle Puppy After Having Leg Amputated

Share

The process of bringing a new life into this world is a miracle, especially when things don’t quite go medically right for the mother.

Just think about the miracle of these canine mothers giving birth. According to WWBT, a Virginia-based dog rescue saw something they called a Christmas miracle in 2016.

Richmond Animal Care and Control had received a call that someone had thrown a dog into a dumpster behind an apartment complex. When the rescue center’s employees arrived, they found something shocking.

The dog, a pit bull, was in an advanced stage of pregnancy.

“When we picked her up, she was enormous and already dripping milk,” director Christie Chipps Peters said.

Less than two days later, the dog had given birth to seven perfectly healthy puppies. That seemed amazing, particularly given the abusive circumstances in which the shelter had found her.

According to KEPR-TV, a little chihuahua in Hermiston, Oregon, is showing the world how tough a mama can be.

The poor pup was hit by a speeding car in the middle of the street.

Horribly, the automobile’s impact had irreparably damaged her left rear leg. Then the chihuahua went into labor.

The baby proved too large for the canine mother to deliver naturally, and the dog went into shock.

Luckily, nonprofit Fuzz Ball Animal Rescue got to her in time.

They delivered the puppy via Caesarean section and amputated the chihuahua’s leg. Both survived, and the mama has begun to recover.

“This is one heck of a miracle,” the group said.

“To have survived being on the streets, run over, in labor with a puppy that was too big to come out and then a c-section and leg amputation while in shock!”
