Meet Petey, a puppy who was sent to the park with his brother to die because he was different. As she was taking her son home from college, a woman from Sacramento, California noticed the dogs and immediately rushed them to the vet. They were hungry, exhausted and cold as ice. Petey’s sister died shortly after arriving at the facility, but Petey made the decision to fight for his life.
Veterinarians quickly realized that something was wrong when the puppy could not move properly. Petey was diagnosed with cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition that indicates that his brain is not fully developed.
Dr. Laurie Siperstein-Cook, a veterinarian at the Sacramento SPCA, told The Dodo, “This can occur owing to hereditary reasons or infections in the mother throughout growth.” “The symptoms include head bobbing, clumsiness, and falling.”
Petey, on the other hand, is still a very playful dog- Doggy’s foster mother, Westphal-Thomson, described him as “rowdy, interested, and silly.” “He’s also quite self-assured and enjoys meeting new people…”
He has learnt to eat on his own and enjoys running about and cuddling.
The abandoned puppy was promptly adopted by a loving couple who cherish him and would never abandon him since he is unique.
