Legs for Nimble

$10,985 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 378 people in 51 months
Nimble is a chihuahua Pom mix that was brought into this world with a rough start. She was born ( emergency c-section) with partial legs but as she got older her legs became necrotic and started to fall off. Her mother pushed her away because of her disabilities and had to be hand raised. Shes a survivor though, through all this she fought for her life, but has left her with only 1/3 - 1/2 of all four of legs. My goal is to get her a cart for the front legs and prosthetics for the back legs, but taking her to a specialist and getting her the necessary doctor appointments is going to start building up and I can't do it alone. 
She has so much spirit, so much love, I had to adopt her because hearing that someone was going to end her life because of her disabilities, I couldn't let that happen. She has brightened up our home, I just want the best quality of life for her, and getting her these special "legs" would allow her to be more mobile and able to get around better. I see her favore her little nubs and having the proper equipment would truly help!

Since I am no longer on a "hush hush" agreement I can indulge in letting everyone know. Nimbles project has been picked up by 3dPawsthetics! They are strictly animal oriented and we couldn't be happier. They are a wonderful and loving team, the prosthetics specialist / engineer is hopeful we can actually accomplish four prosthetics which mean she wouldn't have to be restricted to a cart after all. This is amazing news, we met with the woman who started this organization that helps animals like nimble. She has two other dogs that have no front legs, whixh in a sense in comforting because she's been through this before. We were also informed that nimble should have prototypes sometime in the next couple weeks, and as she gets more accustomed to the new prosthetics length will be added over time. Nimble is doing great, she's currently "fostering " another kitten so the two of them play constantly along with her own kitten she raised. If you check out her Facebook page I'm post almost daily on there videos and updates, she even has an Instagram (nimble_1) . She attended her first pup party/ event last week and met some great friends that have disabilities like her too. We will update as the process continues !

We are still waiting to hear if the new company is willing to pick up where we left off, I thought I'd share Nimbles antics from earlier.
She has a portable playpen that travels with us so she basically can go every where but has a place where she can rest safely.... She begs to differ about what the playpen really should be used for. It's a portable chew toy to her.
She's reenacting the scene from Jaws!!!

I will try and be better about updating here. She has Facebook , Instagram and vine it's hard to keep up with them all.
She is currently in the running to be an unpaid intern with Barkbox. It's almost like applying for a job. It will be a fun opportunity for her.
Will update if I hear anything about her legs or internship!
She got a bath yesterday!

The positive mold is a stand in for Nimbles actual legs, the prosthetics will be created around these and once a prototype is created then they will be fitted to nimble to see if they work.
Front legs are on the left back legs on the right!

WOW! What a beautiful little girl she has become! Thank you so much for the updated picture. I think her benefactors would be very happy just to see more pictures! I am curious, since it has been some time now, how she now gets around and does she get "physical therapy" somehow so that she will know how to walk on her new legs? I'm thinking that she is nearly a year old, and it seems to be taking a long time to get her new legs, I thought the need would be more urgent before she developed other problems, connected to her current problems? But, thank you so much for the beautiful picture!!
