A Woman Adopted a Puppy with No Front Legs After It Was Scheduled to Be Put Down . . . And His Photos Are Inspiring Others to Adopt Disabled Pets
Six months ago, an animal shelter in Chicago took in a six-week-old pit bull named Rex, who'd been born with NO FRONT LEGS and was also ABUSED.
But no one was willing to adopt him, so they planned to PUT HIM DOWN. Luckily, a group called Rescue Warriors took him in just MINUTES before that happened.
Still, even THEY struggled to find a permanent home for him. Which is when a 24-year-old woman named Kimberly Boshold came into the picture.
Kimberly and her boyfriend Kevin happened to see a photo of Rex online, and offered to take care of him for a few weeks. Then once they saw how sweet he was, they decided to KEEP him.
They've since renamed him Cole, and an organization called Eddie's Wheels built a custom wheelchair for his front legs so he can get around.
But that's not where the story ends, because Kimberly has also made it her mission to inspire OTHER people to help disabled dogs. So now her Instagram page is basically ALL about Cole. And she also set up a Facebook page to raise awareness.
