A chihuahua puppy born with a fifth leg protruding from her stomach won’t have it much longer.
The puppy, originally named Precious, was going to be sold to a Coney Island freak show until a local woman stepped in to buy her. Now called Lilly, she’s been checked by a vet and given her shots, and is scheduled for surgery to remove the extra leg.
“Everything looks like it’s going to be pretty simple,” said Allyson Siegel, Lilly’s new owner. “Once the leg’s off she should be a normal little puppy.”
Siegel plans to give Lilly to her sister and niece once the dog has recuperated.
