The tiny puppy seems too small to be real. It’s so petite, but that isn’t the only thing that’s unique about this dog. He’s also missing an ear. The dog was the first to be born to a mommy dog that the owner was fostering. As the runt of the litter, it was very difficult for the puppy to get the nutrition he needed. He lost weight the first day, which is a bad sign for puppies.
The foster mom had to feed the dog via a bottle a couple of times a day to help the dog gain some strength. She was always afraid that when she went in each morning, the puppy would be gone.
This dog was a fighter though, which you can see in the video below.
Despite all odds, this special pup kept growing and surviving.
