Dog Left To D-i-e For Being Different Finally Finds Couple Who Loves Him For Who He Is

Meet Petey, the puppy who was abandoned with his brother in a park because he was different.

While walking her son home from school, a woman from Sacramento, California, noticed the dogs and rushed them to the vet. They were starved, lethargic, and as cold as ice. Petey's brother died shortly after arriving at the clinic, but Petey decided to fight for his life.

The vets quickly realized there was something wrong when the puppy couldn't move properly. Petey had cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is not fully developed.

Dr. Laurie Siperstein-Cook, a veterinarian at the Sacramento SPCA, told The Dodo that "this can happen due to genetic causes or infections in the mother during development." Head bobbing, clumsiness, and falling are among the symptoms.

Petey, on the other hand, "is a rambunctious, curious, and silly dog,'' According to Westphal-Thomson, the dog's foster mom. "He's also quite self-assured and enjoys meeting new people..."

He learned to eat on his own and enjoys running around and cuddling. The abandoned puppy was quickly adopted by a loving couple who adore him and will never abandon him because he is unique.

He's now in a sweet family where he will grow up full of joy. We're so happy and thankfully everyone for saving this little sweetheart. We pray for him and we love him.  Watch the video here:
