Celia may have only three legs—but that doesn’t slow her down when it comes to greeting new friends, asking for treats, and giving enthusiastic kisses to everyone she meets.
It’s hard to believe where she came from: As this new PETA video shows, Celia used to live with owners who called her “ugly” and admitted that they had never wanted her. When their 5-year-old threw her off a two-story balcony, shattering her leg, PETA came to her rescue. Though an X-ray showed that her injuries were so severe that her leg had to be amputated, the terrible fall didn’t break Celia’s spirit: This happy, playful dog loves everyone she meets, and it didn’t take long for PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—to find her a new home with a family who will always protect her.
