This unfortunate dog was born with a face that’s a bit askew. His nose points downwards and to the right, while his jaw tilts upwards and to the left.
Picasso, a delightful ten-month-old puppy, is a blend of corgi and pitbull-terrier. Unfortunately, he has faced challenges in finding his forever home. The problem lies not only with his appearance but also with a deformity that affects his teeth, causing them to protrude into the roof of his mouth and making it difficult for him to eat. Sadly, breeders abandoned him at the Porterville Animal Shelter, a refuge for homeless dogs in California.
Picasso, along with his brother Pablo, faced the grim fate of being put down if they were not placed in a home. Fortunately, Luvable Dog Rescue, a charitable organization dedicated to finding homes for dogs, noticed them and decided to take them in at their shelter in Oregon. Liesl Wilhardt, the executive director of the rescue, asked volunteer Shannon Corbit if they had any unusual-looking or special needs dogs to care for, and Shannon showed her Picasso’s intake photo. Despite his twisted face, which was quite startling, Liesl fell in love with his soft and gentle eyes and decided to take him under their wing.
Liesl is currently eager to give a home to the two brothers together, as they share an unbreakable bond and separating them would be heartbreaking. With many people already showing interest in adopting them, she hopes to make it happen soon.
Picasso is scheduled for a dental procedure to alleviate his tooth trouble in the near future. After it’s done, the plan is for the dogs to relocate to a new home with a loving family.
