Dogs are meant to be a family member for life. Not only do they bring great joy into our lives, but they are also a big responsibility.
Puppies, especially, are least capable of fending for themselves on the streets. Most often, people will be puzzled on how some owners could abandon a puppy in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately for a puppy named Petey, this was what had happened.
Petey was left in the middle of the park along with one of his brothers by his former owner, as they were not like normal like the others. Thankfully for the puppies, a woman had found them and brought them to a vet for medical help. Both of the puppies were malnourished, exhausted and had critically low body temperatures. Once they were brought to the vet, the vet had noticed that Petey was not moving normally.
He was diagnosed with a condition called cerebellar hypoplasia, which is a neurological disease caused by an undeveloped cerebellum. This condition causes Petey to be unable to walk properly and constantly bobs his head. Petey had a new foster mom, who is willing to accommodate to Petey’s special needs. According to his new foster mom, Petey is a curious and friendly puppy and enjoys meeting people.
As time passed, Petey has learned to eat on his own and is now able to run as well! Petey soon caught the attention of a couple, who decided to adopt him. Currently, Petey is living happily and comfortably in his new forever home!
Having a dog is for life and should be never given up upon, no matter the circumstances.
