A cute little Queensland toddler, who was born with one arm, has found a new buddy in a three-legged furry pet. The Staffy Boston Terrier Cross, named Snowy, has become the apple of one-year-old Ella Peggie’s eye and the two have become inseparable friends.
As soon as Brooke Hodgson stumbled upon the hound pound website, she had a gut feeling that Snowy would be the perfect addition to their family. The 21-year-old mother has high hopes that the puppy will stick by her daughter Ella’s side through thick and thin, providing her with comfort and companionship as she navigates through life.
As she sets out to commute to her high school, she may face challenges in riding her motorbike or find it difficult to climb the monkey bars during playtime.
Ella Peggie, a young girl who was born without her left arm, has been given a unique opportunity to bond with her new furry friend – a three-legged puppy. The one-year-old Staffy Boston Terrier Cross named Snowy was found in a hound pound and was deemed the perfect companion for Ella by her mother, Brooke Hodgson. In an effort to adopt Snowy from the Animal Welfare League of Queensland (AWLQ) rehoming site on the Gold Coast, Brooke composed a heartfelt email to the organization requesting their assistance.
Ms. Hodgson shared that upon discovering Snowy on the internet, she felt an instant connection and her heart skipped a beat. She currently resides in Loganholm, Queensland, Australia. Ms. Hodgson believes that Snowy will be an excellent companion for Ella as they are of the same age and will have a long-lasting friendship ahead of them. She is confident that Snowy’s presence will boost Ella’s confidence as she matures.
When Ella realizes that she is unique and has her own identity, it will be a remarkable moment for her. Even on terrible days, she will find comfort in knowing that she is not alone. Last week, a pound dog who had recently undergone surgery to remove a leg was surrendered to an animal shelter. However, within just three days, the adorable canine found a new home. The mother of two who adopted the pup has been touched by the heartwarming bond between the two. She hopes that this affectionate dog will be a constant source of love and support for Ella during life’s ups and downs.
According to Ms Hodgson, it took a while for Ella to warm up to the energetic pet as she had never been around animals before. However, she quickly grew comfortable with Snowy and they now snuggle up close and exchange kisses. Every morning, Snowy looks for Ella first before anyone else, indicating a strong bond between them. Ms Hodgson feels grateful that she was able to provide Ella with this dog and is excited to see their relationship grow even closer. She believes that this special bond will make a positive difference in Ella’s life, and considers herself blessed to be able to offer this opportunity to her daughter.
The new mother shared that Snowy, their recently welcomed pet, has been playing a significant role in Ella’s life, as well as her father and three-year-old brother Blake. Despite her Amniotic Band syndrome, Ella is a healthy and perfect baby who has always amazed others with her resilience. According to her mother, Ella has learned to adapt to her condition and finds ways to do things on her own. Although there are concerns about how she will cope in school, her family is focusing on enjoying the present and being grateful for their happy and healthy daughter. In an update, Ella and Snowy continue to enjoy life together, proving that they can overcome any obstacle. To follow their journey, please visit their Facebook page.
