One of my favorite things are baby animals, especially little baby puppies. I love them so much I could cry! Their little baby paws and their precious little walks are just too much for me to handle. I don’t think there’s anything more adorable than a little puppy.
For me, part of the appeal of a puppy is that they’re only a puppy for a little while. It’s a precious season of life where they are new to the world and everything is a learning experience. While a teeny tiny puppy is my favorite thing ever, I realize that the puppy will turn into a big dog one day.
While the puppy season doesn’t last for forever, there are people who try to breed dogs to stay forever puppies. While this is never sought to intentionally hurt a dog, it can be a huge risk as to their health.
One breeder recently tried to breed an extra mini bulldog. Bulldogs by nature can range in size from 12 to 50 pounds. For a full-size bulldog to be any smaller than that could be risky to the animal’s health.
Recently, one bulldog litter was bred with the runt of the litter weighed less than 2 pounds. After a couple weeks, the breeder noticed that the littlest guy was falling behind his siblings and getting very sick. The puppy was taken to an animal shelter where he could get the care he needed for a long and happy life.
The tiny puppy was given love and attention and was adopted by one of the volunteers at the shelter. The volunteer, however, had a special place in heart for Bulldogs, and was able to bring the puppy home. As she grew to be a healthy and feisty little pup, she was rightfully named “Hopelily.”
Hopelily was given lots of love from both her owner and her brother and sister bulldogs. The vets say she will grow to be healthy and live a long life full of happiness and spunk.
Hopelily’s inspiring story featured on the Road Dogs & Rescue Foundation page in efforts to increase awareness of Bulldogs. Hopelily is one of the newest Bulldogs featured in the foundation and her story is bring hope to people everywhere.
While the start of her story wasn’t as expected, Hopelily has surprised the world with her strength and grit! She is a dog that’s overcoming obstacles and increasing cuteness one day at a time! Hopelily, you are a beautiful and strong little fighter! I can’t wait to see how you take on this world with your spunky little love for life!
