Lunita, a Disabled Dog with a Wheelchair Was Abandoned in the Middle of the Street. This is Her Story.

 Some stories touch our hearts, and this is one of them, a narrative that will fill our eyes with tears of pain and delight as we see how Lunita's request, a lovely crippled dog with white fur who was abandoned a few years ago in Argentina, was granted.

Lunita was chained to the fence of a hair salon on Zabala street in the Salta neighborhood in the early morning of May 12, 2014.

Lunita was face down on the pavement. She was sitting in a rickety wheelchair, with a pack of diapers and a note confirming her name and age; the person who had left her there also noted that it was not her owner and that she could not keep it.


The store clerk who witnessed her misery immediately alerted the rescue organization Lu.B.A Salta, and two of their volunteers came hunting for Lunita.

When the rescuers arrived, they were moved by what they found: a crippled dog with no food or drink, a flooded diaper, and a beseeching gaze. She appeared frail and afraid, and neighbors claim she was so taken aback by the noises and odd people that she almost forced herself to walk in her haste to flee.


Fortunately, nice people were present, and assistance was dispatched, and she was transferred to the shelter.


Lunita had managed to fly after hearing that an American family was eager to adopt her. Her adopted family, on the other hand, was uninformed about caring for a crippled dog, causing Lunita to get a dangerous urinary tract infection.

As a result of mite infestation, she was diagnosed with a serious staphylococcal infection (Mange). She lost all of her hair from the waist down, including her tail, due to infection, scabies, and scorched wounds from her urine. She went through a lot because she was underweight at 15 kg.


Lunita was adopted by a loving new family in another state after much effort, continuous vet appointments, and a lot of medicine. She recovered and reached a healthy weight of 25 kg thanks to her resolve to live and the care she received.


However, because of her condition, she needed medical treatment, which came at a significant monthly expense. She never went without anything since she had a reserve of money raised that she used to cover her necessities. Lunita would not have gotten this far without the kindness of those who donated and the involvement of sponsors who wanted to assist alter Lunita's life right away.

The family who adopted her was ideal. She has tasted true bliss and lived surrounded by affection ever since. On June 15, 2018, she celebrated her eleventh birthday in grand style. Only no one could have predicted what was about to unfold.

People from all around the world who had fallen in love with her narrative wanted to congratulate her that day, and messages and greetings flooded Lunita's Wish Facebook page.

Lunita's life journey has been difficult, yet despite her impairment, she has overcome every challenge that looked insurmountable. Lunita was never defeated. Lunita does not lack for enjoyable outdoor hikes.

Her physical condition began to deteriorate shortly after she became 11 years old, and she was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) to be treated.

The owner expressed her condolences, saying that Lunita was no longer with her. She died on July 8th.

She said on Facebook that they were heartbroken and that she couldn't stop weeping. She used the occasion to convey her gratitude to everyone who prayed and donated to aid Lunita.

She and her family could have and be all that every dog has always deserved. She spent her final years surrounded by a lot of love.

Adopting a crippled cat or dog will flood your heart with gratitude and affection. This great dog's memories will live on in our hearts forever.


Lunita, rest in peace
