In Michigan, an adorable two-year-old boy’s photos hugging his new puppy promises to bring a smile to your face and a warm, fuzzy feeling to your heart. Meet Bentley and his new puppy. The two instantly fell in love with each other on Saturday at the Jackson County Animal Shelter in Jackson, Michigan.
According to the shelter, Bentley has undergone multiple surgeries. And then…
“Introducing Bentley and his new puppy.. At 2 years old and with surgeries already under his belt for his cleft lip, Bentley found his match today in this tiny pup who also has a cleft lip,” the shelter posted on their Facebook page.
And with photos that could make the sun shine on the rainiest day, social media smiled – to the tune of 25,000 “likes” on Facebook and more than 4,000 positive comments.
Cleft lip, medically known as a palatoschisis or congenital oronasal fistula) and cleft palate are birth defects that occur when a puppy’s lip or mouth do not form properly during pregnancy. After birth the pup will have an opening in the upper lip and may be a very small slit or more severely – a large opening extending into the puppy’s nose. Small clefts rarely cause issues, however the best option is surgery.
“They instantly loved each other. We wish many years of joy as this special pair grow up together,” the shelter added.
