While healing her legs will be more difficult since she wasn't treated at birth, Edgar's Mission isn't daunted by the task. After all, it's hard to be upset about Pixie's diagnosis when, in a miraculous twist of fate, it's the only thing that saved her life.
"We'll work out the best possible outcome to give Pixie a life truly worth living," Ahern said. "That is what I want above all else."
If you'd like to help care for Pixie and the other animals at Edgar's Mission, you can make a donation through the sanctuary's website.
