When Kit Shinobu decided to get a dog, she pictured it to be a tiny, cute puppy. Many people wind up buying puppies, without realizing how many older dogs are stuck in shelters.

Shinobu was on Facebook one day when she saw a picture of a three-year-old Husky from a dog farm in Thailand who needed help. That’s when Shinobu had a change of heart.

The dog, named Maya, only had two paws, and needed someone to adopt her who would have the time to take care of her and her special needs. Aside from only having two paws, she also has medical issues with her hips and bones. She can’t walk on her own, but she does have an adorable wheelchair to help her get around.

Just like many other dogs, she loves swimming, cuddling, and running. Her wheelchair definitely hasn’t slowed her down, and she’s able to run just as fast as other dogs can.
