The malformed dog is neglected because potential owners think he is unsightly, despite the fact that his owner loves him so much and provides for him despite his unique genetic condition
Every puppy is adorable. Regardless of any unique requirements, lasting scars, or peculiar traits, these animals are wonderful and deserving of admiration. Unintentionally left in a shelter was a dog by the name of Walter. One particular animal lover’s heart was broken by the explanations for why the dog was frequently disregarded. An employee of the shelter, where Gabby, an animal lover, was already working to save another dog, greeted her. Walter was present when Gabby arrived.
“Hey Gabby, you’ve got to see this dog,” the volunteer added. Because Gabby helped dogs with specific needs, the volunteer believed she might help Walter find a permanent home.
Gabby could tell the instant she saw the odd canine that he wasn’t like other dogs. She had never seen a dog with such a terrible underbite or one this little. His spine and legs were obviously out of alignment, as well. The area around Gabby was silent. She intended to introduce herself and take Walter.
Although Gabby could see that Walter was unique and different from her, she was also aware of the bleak circumstances. Walter would take a very long time to find a home because of his specific needs and trouble finding one, or he would be killed at the shelter.
The bulk of people passed past Walter’s kennel frowning. The dog was disliked by certain individuals because they felt it was ugly. not Gabby though! She praised him as being wonderful.
The nice woman knew then that she had to take Walter home and adopt him herself. Gabby dismissed the dog’s “defects” without delay. She thought Walter was spotless. It didn’t matter that he didn’t resemble other dogs or that he wouldn’t have a long life; what mattered was that he was able to love and that Gabby could provide for his happiness.
Mucopolysaccharidosis VI is an uncommon genetic condition that Walter carries (MPS VI). Sadly, it is a fatal condition that worsens over time. Walter might not live a long life as a result, but he might still live a good life.
When they arrived at their house together, Gabby realized right away that Walter is special. He never stops grinning. He attempts to sprint sporadically but is motivated to walk as much as he can. Walter continued to move despite the strain it was placing on his body. That was enjoyable for Gabby too!
When Walter returned home, Gabby initially focused on physical therapy in a small kiddie pool. Walter was ecstatic. The water also significantly improved his physical characteristics. Soon it would be time to start cleaning up the yard. The entire time, Walter’s mother had been encouraging him, and he didn’t allow anything stand in his way of reaching her.
Gabby thinks her bond with Walter stems from the fact that her father died of multiple sclerosis. She describes how her father was incredibly strong despite having a similar disability toward the end of his life in the video below.
As a result, Gabby developed a completely different viewpoint on people and animals who experience hardship yet still persevere. Gabby noted Walter’s upbeat attitude and thought of her father at once. The same things happened to her father.
