Meet 10-month-old Picasso, a pitbull-terrier mix, who’s had a bit of a rough start to life.
He has a noticeable facial deformity, where his snout twists to the right and his jaw to the left. Otherwise, it’s a happy and healthy dog.
Picasso was destined for euthanasia at an animal shelter after his breeder was unable to sell him. His brother Pablo was also given up to the same shelter, after his adopted family didn’t want him anymore, according to The Dodo.
But the pair’s plight got the attention of Oregon-based Luvable Dog Rescue, who initially took in Picasso when it went looking for dogs with special needs.
Then soon realised Pablo was on the euthanasia list too, and they couldn’t leave him behind.
The rescue shelter said on its website it has been “swamped with offers” to take in the dogs, but Picasso needs dental surgery first, before being considered for a home. The brothers will need to be placed together, of course.
In the meantime, here’s a bunch of cute videos of Picasso and Pablo doing typical doggy things, which have melted the internet’s hearts already.
