Chi Chi is a very special 4 year old Golden Retriever from Arizona who truly deserves to win the American Humane Hero Dog Award!
Chi Chi was found abandoned in the garbage in South Korea, with her legs bound and the flesh already dying. In order to save her life, all 4 of her limbs were partially amputated.
It took a while for poor Chi Chi to warm up to people after her recovery and adoption, but her sweet nature won out and she now works as a therapy dog.
Chi Chi gets around on a set of custom prosthetics and is an inspiration to everyone who meets her!
Recently Chi Chi also had a cancer scare, but successfully underwent tumor removal surgery.
As American Humane says, “When people hear Chi Chi’s story and experience her attitude of joy, they are often inspired to face their challenges with renewed courage and a fresh perspective.”
You can see Chi Chi and all the other Hero Dog Award recipients on the “American Humane Hero Dog Awards” show, which airs October 24th on the Hallmark Channel.
