This is one of my little guys named Scooter. Scooter is a disabled Chihuahua male that was born without front legs. He is 4 months old now and doing great. A little spoiled but great. He will get his wheelchair cart in 2 months and then the fun begins. He's hard to keep up with now but wait until he gets his wheels.

oh my gosh... what a cute little guy!! I'm so sorry about his legs, or lack thereof - but he doesn't seem to mind all that much! I bet he'll be a REAL Scooter when he gets his wheelchair!!

He's just adorable. Bless you for taking care of him and making sure he gets the best life possible.

When Scooter was born he looked normal and I didn't notice he was missing his legs. After his mom had him and his completely normal brother cleaned up I picked them up to see if I had girls or boys. I picked up Scooters brother now named Shorty Doo Wop because he's a short stuff. Then when I picked up Scooter I almost dropped him. I sat in the floor, held him and cried for him then realized I had to make a decission. Will he live or be put down. He was so perfect in everyother way that I said to myself we have an uphill battle on our hands but I always was one for a challenge. Of all the Chis I have raised Scooter is the most loving. He stays with my Mom while I am away and they have fallen in love with each other. Scooter has learned to releave himself without making a mess and eats, drinks and does everything the others do. He knows he is special and eats up all of the attention. I have a cart on order and when he is 6 months old he will be fitted for it. I made a temporary one so he could learn to use it. He is cool with it for a while until he gets tired of it then its back to scooting across the floor like a rabbit. Scooter has all the love anyone could ever want and will by the grace of God and all of the kind folks that have helped him, he will live a full and happy life. We thank you for all of your sweet comments but I have to admit. Once I looked into those trusting eyes of my little guy it was not hard to fall in love with him. Again thanks from Scooter and Alan

I am so glad you didnt have him put down! I would like to ask a question that is on everyones minds, are you planning to breed those 2 parents again? Because of the gentic defects? :?: I am glad he has parents like you! :wink:

I spoke to the vet about what I should do with his Mom and Dad and the vet said that Scooter is a one in a million thing that may never happen again. Not wanting to take a chance I had his Mom spayed. His Dad has fathered several other litters and not a defect in the crowd. The way I see it is for a genetic mishap, he's a cute little bugger.

What an amazing little fellow you have. He is just adorable. I am so glad that you decided to keep him. I can't wait to see more pictures of him. What part of SC do you live? I live in Edisto Beach down in the lowcountry.
