Celia is a very cute and affectionate little dog who you can’t help but fall in love with. Aside from her only having three legs, you wouldn’t know that this little fluffy white pup has been through such a traumatic ordeal.

Celia suffered a shattered leg after a child threw her off a balcony. The fall broke her leg and left the poor pup in what must have been excruciating pain. 

PETA to the rescue

While her owners did call PETA for help, they weren’t at all worried about the dog or upset. They told the PETA fieldworker that they didn’t want her anyway because she was ‘ugly’. 

Despite her injury and obvious pain, Celia couldn’t hide her excitement at meeting the fieldworker, smothering them in kisses and enthusiastically wagging her tail. It seemed that while Celia was determined to survive, she was keen to make as many new friends as she could along the way. 

Happy ending 

After she was rushed to the vet, Celia had an x-ray which revealed that her front leg was beyond repair and would have to be amputated. But losing a leg didn’t stop Celia from charming everyone. So smitten was the vet by the brave dog that she offered to foster her.

While Celia has amazed everyone with her remarkable recovery, they are also delighted that the lovely little dog has now found her happily ever after with a loving family who will give her the love she deserves.
