ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A three-legged dog from Englewood needs help winning a national competition that would ultimately benefit rescue animals.
Courtnee Pedone adopted ‘Nelliee’, a cattle dog with three legs, from the Denver Dumb Friends League this past year.
Pedone believes ‘Nellie’ lost her leg after a car hit her.
"I can’t imagine her with 4 legs, because she just acts completely normal!” Pedone explained.
‘Nelliee’ was recently selected to compete in the Pibborafi Rescue Hero plushie competition. Pibborafi is a company that creates palm-sized children’s toys based after real-life rescue dogs.
"I think it’s just nice because it goes to such a good cause,” Pedone said.
Once you click on the post, you have to comment with ‘Nelliee’s’ breed (cattle dog), then her name (Nelliee), as well as her instagram handle: @NellieeTheTripod.
If ‘Nelliee’ wins, she’ll receive a replica plushie of herself as well as additional plushies that would be donated to an organization.
"And all of the proceeds go to a shelter that we decide,” Pedone said.
Pedone said, if chosen, the donations would go to the Denver Dumb Friends League.AlertMe
