This is the story of a tiny little Chihuahua puppy called Daffodil, who was abandoned on a bustling street in San Francisco and found at the bottom of a soggy cardboard box. Why on earth would anyone do that, you ask.

This gorgeous pup wasn’t like all the others. She was sadly born with no front paws. And despite numerous people walking past her and seeing her desperate face, no one stopped to help her.


Daffodil’s rescuer caught one person picking the puppy up out of the box, and after seeing her deformity, they put her back in it. Perhaps they thought her life wouldn’t be ‘worth’ saving, and how wrong they were…

Thankfully, a local man passing by named Jene stopped to help poor Daffodil. Once he got her out of the box and wrapped her up in a t-shirt, Jene took her back to his house. The young man knew that Daffodil (her new name) would need more help than he could offer her. So he decided to take her to the SPCA in San Francisco.

She’s now living life to the fullest in Colorado.

The SPCA wanted to offer Daffodil the same chance at life as other healthy, everyday dogs. So they decided to make the puppy a pair of artificial limbs, custom-fitted with tiny wheels so she could walk about wherever she liked.


Day by day, Daffodil got used to her new wheelchair, and she’s now even running about on it!


And to top it all off, she’s now found an amazing adoptive family and is more loved than ever. Her forever mom is one of the volunteers at the SPCA who just wholly fell for Daffodil when she saw her. She’s now living life to the fullest in Colorado.

And who could have imagined that life would change so much for him, from a cardboard box to such a good life

We hope Daffodil is as happy and loved as she deserves for many more years!
