A puppy named Nubby was born without his front paws, an uncommon disability that would soon make life more challenging and full of hardships. His healthy Pit Bull siblings bullied him by pushing him away from his mother so he couldn’t eat. As Nubby lay there, hungry and alone, it seemed like a grim fate awaited him. Nubby grew weaker, unable to fight off his stronger siblings. He needed human intervention. Nubby’s owners, the Robertsons, felt helpless. They watched as Nubby struggled to survive. They brought him to their veterinarian, who recommended Nubby be put to sleep.

The Robertsons took on the daunting task of bottle-feeding the puppy around the clock. As weeks passed, Nubby became stronger. Even though he seemed to be improving, Nubby had set back.
