Marvel was the only puppy born without a front right paw in her litter. But she was destined to be a part of a family that desperately needed her.
Paxton Williams, a 7-year-old Minnesota boy who had his right leg amputated three years ago, has found his forever home with the golden retriever puppy born without a paw.
“When she was born, we knew right away she had a special purpose,” breeder Barb Felt said. “We wanted her to go in a home with someone who had a limb difference.”
Paxton was born prematurely, and as a result of this, he developed an infection in his right leg. Paxton’s parents made the painful decision to amputate his right leg three years ago.
“It gives him the opportunity to tell the kids, ‘Oh, she’s missing a paw, she’s like me,'” Paxton’s mom explained. “And like it gives him that voice, too, to advocate for himself.”
