This week's Animal Oddity will melt your heart. While stories of animals with missing limbs, extra limbs, bizarre colors or even two heads are rare, they are not as uncommon as you might think.

In this case, three adorable chihuahua pups who seem to have been born missing their front legs were anonymously dropped off at MSPCA, an open admissions animal shelter in Massachussetts.

In the video below, you can see just how adaptable these too-cute-for-words pups are. They hardly seem fazed by their "disability."

This video was originally posted to YouTube on March 8th and has begun to go viral, so it's quite likely that these particular dogs have already found good homes. However, there are millions of potential pets that are euthanized every year, so consider adoption first if you're looking for a new pet and be sure to spay or neuter your pets so they don't contribute to the problem.

As always, you can read about the latest odd animal news, stories and behaviors on my Animal Planet blog, Animal Oddities.
