Baby Ella Peggy was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, which left her completely missing her left arm.
The injury does not prevent the girl from growing and developing like any ordinary child, and Ella successfully compensates for the lack of a hand with her head and legs.
According to her mother Brooke Hodgson, the girl quickly and easily adapts to any difficulties.
One day, Brooke saw on TV a report from an animal shelter, where they showed a three-legged dog, a cross between a Staffordshire and a Boston terrier named Snowy and realized that this dog could be the perfect companion for her daughter.
Brooke wrote a touching letter to the Queensland Animal Welfare League asking them to give the dog to her family.
“My heart pounded harder when I saw Snowy,” Brooke Hodgson told reporters from Daily Mail Australia, “I knew that he would be the perfect friend for Ella, besides, they are the same age, and caring for a dog will be a new stage for her growing up. She will see that there is someone else just like her.”
Now this family from Queensland can be called exemplary: husband, wife, two children (Ella has an older brother) and a cheerful pet.
At first, it was not easy for the girl to get used to a very active dog, but now they are best friends.
Snowy was not born crippled, his paw was surgically removed due to an injury.
– They like to sit together and Ella often hugs him. And I noticed how every morning Snowy first looks for Ella, and then runs to other family members.
