Chi Chi, a 2-year-old Golden Retriever mix, has finally reached the end of a long, painful journey. Since she was discovered in a garbage bag in a Korean alley, Chi Chi has undergone radical surgery, a grueling recovery, and a voyage across the world to Phoenix, Arizona.
Now she finally has a place to call home and a family that loves her—a fate that probably seemed like an impossible dream to Chi Chi a few months ago.
Chi Chi, which means ‘Loving’ in Korean, was discovered outside of a rural meat market in South Korea. All four of her limbs were bound with wire and badly injured. The head of a local animal shelter, Ju Yu, believes that the wire and injuries indicate that Chi Chi had been hung inside the meat market by her limbs and beaten. Luckily for Chi Chi, she had much brighter future ahead of her that involved finally getting a family of her own!
In fact, according to the YouTube description, “Chi Chi smelled grass for the first time at the Howell’s home in Phoenix. They hope to make her a therapy dog and visit amputees in hospitals.” Her life is completely changing for the better!
