阿金奇奇罹癌病逝…曾遭鐵絲綑綁棄肉場 獲救截四肢暖笑撫慰人

寵物小組/綜合報導

黃金獵犬奇奇(Chi Chi)是一隻特別的治療犬,牠雖然四肢截肢,卻仍用溫暖笑容撫慰人心,甚至因此獲得美國人道協會頒發的「年度英雄犬獎」。然而,奇奇去年3月罹患癌症,努力了11個月後,於今年2月病逝,讓許多人感到相當不捨。(即時接收毛毛軍團訊息!快加寵物雲Line

奇奇(Chi Chi)小時候在南韓時,遭人用鐵絲捆綁四肢,套上黑色垃圾袋丟棄在狗肉市場外面,當時牠因傷勢過重瀕臨垂死邊緣,經動保組織救援後,四肢截肢才撿回一命。事後,命運多舛的牠被住在美國的伊莉莎白(Elizabeth Howell)領養,並換上新的義肢,過著幸福的生活,還鼓勵了許多人。

截肢後的奇奇雖然變成了腿短的「柯基」,卻絲毫沒有影響到牠的生活,不僅跟一般狗狗一樣能跑能跳,上下樓梯也難不倒牠。伊莉莎白從奇奇堅韌的生命力中,看到了能夠溫暖人心的神奇力量,於是將牠送到狗狗學校學習,最後順利取得證照,成為「治療犬」。

當上治療犬的奇奇會定期拜訪老人院、學校,安慰那些曾和牠一樣處在生命低潮的患者與傷者。伊莉莎白表示,曾有一位被酒駕司機撞斷腿的女士,看到奇奇的第一眼就流下眼淚,似乎是能理解並接收牠的溫暖。(ETtoday寵物雲有IG了,快按追蹤

We had record rain this week, so it’s been very wet outside. Today, it was finally dry enough for me to take some pictures with my trophies and the medal I received at the Hero Dog Awards. I received a medal and a beautiful glass trophy for being the 2018 Hero Therapy Dog. I received a wood trophy with a hero dog for being the 2018 American Hero Dog. I am so grateful for all of your love and support and for everyone who voted, shared and encouraged their friends and family to vote for me. None of this would have been possible without your unending commitment to vote daily over the past 7 months. It is truly an honor to receive these awards, and I hope that even more people are now positively impacted by my story. Thank you for your continued positive thoughts, healing vibes and prayers for my complete and perfect healing. #nevergiveup #cherisheveryday #loveabundantly #2018AmericanHeroDog @herodogawards @hallmarkchannel @chickensouppets

有著撫慰人心力量的奇奇於2018年被選為「年度英雄犬」。美國人道協會(American Humane)指出,這個獎項頒發給奇奇,是因為牠即使曾被人類傷害,卻仍然積極樂觀地活下去,甚至成為治療犬,將鼓勵了許多人。

令人難過的是,奇奇去年3月在鼻腔內長了東西,就醫後確診為惡性腫瘤。罹患癌症的奇奇堅強地撐過了多次的放射治療,病情一度好轉,但最終仍不敵病魔,於2月5日離開人世。

伊莉莎白在IG上分享這個消息並寫道,「奇奇被愛包圍著,安詳地離開了,我們會永遠想念牠。」「我們對牠的愛超過言語可以形容,牠改變了我們的生命,也帶給世界上許多人正面影響,我們相信牠的精神會繼續留存下去。」「我們全家的心都碎了,但我知道我們總有一天會在天堂重聚。」

Today is the day we’ve been dreading. Chi Chi passed away peacefully and surrounded by love. She was not in pain and did not suffer. Today she is complete in Heaven and we will miss her forever. We love her more than words can express. She changed our lives and positively impacted many people all over the world. We believe she will continue to inspire people for a long time to come. We are grateful for every day we had with her and know that 100 years with her wouldn’t have been enough. One day we will be reunited with her in Heaven. Our family is heartbroken. . #nevergiveup #cherisheveryday #loveabundantly #teamchichi #2018AmericanHeroDog #SuperHeroOfHappiness #grateful #teamMaggie
