Matilda’s head was larger than her body when she was adopted. She looked more like a skeleton than a live and breathing dog. You could see her ribs and she was only 13 ounces, which is less than one pound, when she was seven weeks old. They didn’t know how long the puppy would make it since she was so small and sickly.
The family tried not to get too attached to the puppy because they were so worried she might not make it through the night. But she kept growing and getting stronger with each feeding and the loving care the family provided.
Watch the video to see what this tiny puppy grows up to look like.
What a touching story of a dog who wasn’t willing to give up the fight.
