A dog born without front legs has achieved celebrity status in a small town in Peru.
Estrella, a one-and-a-half-year-old dog, was adopted by the owners of an animal shelter after she was found abandoned in the street at 6 months-old.
The shelter is located in Tinga Maria run by Ivan Escobar and his wife. Since Estrella’s arrival they have received a large number of visitors who come especially to see the cute two-legged pooch. They have taken advantage of the pup’s fame to raise funds because it has enabled them to take in more abandoned animals.
Despite her disabilities, Estrella is one happy dog who enjoys food, play time, and bonding with her humans. Her disability does not bring her down and she often plays with the shelter’s dogs like a regular pup.
Let’s hope Estrella’s story will make families think twice before abandoning pets born with defects.
