They've named her Chiquita. They being the great people who banded together to rescue her from the dangerous streets of Lima, Peru. She used to have a little wheelchair, she used to be able to "walk," until it was stolen from her. The confusion and terror which must have swept over her during that callous act fills you with a mix of immense sadness and anger. What kind of human being steals a wheelchair from a disabled dog leaving her to try and drag her crumpled little body on the street.
We discovered little Chiquita's story when we stumbled across a short 15 second video on our Facebook newsfeed. We could have simply clicked "Like" and have moved on but this disabled little girl, though thousands of miles away from us, needed help.
