For many soon to be adoptive pet parents, the mystery of their new pet is one of the most influential reasons they adopt. Some unique traits present themselves much later after the adoption whereas others are very apparent.
In this story, one dog was originally adopted with a very obvious difference. However, it’s not his obvious difference that makes him special.
Meet Cody, a two- legged, special needs Chihuahua mix, who was left at an animal shelter. After much consideration, the original family decided that they wouldn’t be able to give Cody the support that he’d undoubtedly need. Not knowing when- or even if- he’d get adopted, they left him at the shelter.
A moment that could have been entirely discouraging was immediately turned around when a young couple walked into the shelter just as the original owners were walking out. The couple took one look at Cody and said, “Don’t put that dog in a cage.” They knew that they had just found the missing piece of their family.
Without any hesitation, they brought Cody home. With sheer joy and zero hesitation, Cody took to his new family and home. Admittedly, the couple thought that Cody’s uniqueness was in the fact that he only had two legs, but little did they know that this dog was so much more than meets the eye.
