Do puppies sometimes have physical abnormalities from birth that can make them unpopular and even elicit fear and rejection? It’s not the fault of these adorable creatures if they have a condition from birth, is it? Don’t they deserve a good life, respect, and love despite this? It’s terrible how appearance can have such a significant impact on how people feel about them. Animals are not immune to this either.
Take the case of a dog whose appearance may cause one to dislike it. Despite its distorted face, it has many wonderful emotions. I wish there were no prejudices and that everyone could learn to respect and love others, regardless of their differences. Unfortunately, those who deviate from the norm are often unfairly rejected. Everyone who sees this dog immediately flees, without even giving it a chance.
Bethany, an eight-month-old Labrador retriever, was born with a facial deformity that has caused her a great deal of difficulty. She was rescued from the streets of Ukraine, but finding her a permanent home has been a challenge. She needs a loving family that is willing to care for her.
Individuals who come across her usually reject her thinking that she has a “catching” ailment and wish to stay away from her. Her nose is entirely rotated to the right side of her face, and one of her eyes is looking the wrong way, while all of her teeth are exposed. They believe that she is either sick or mean when they initially see her, however, this is entirely untrue.
Bethany has spent a significant amount of time at the Safe Rescue for Dogs shelter in England, struggling to find a forever home due to her appearance. Being born with physical abnormalities in a society where looks matter is unfortunate for Bethany.
According to a spokesperson from the shelter, she is an amazing dog. She loves children, is well-behaved, friendly, healthy, and happy.
When a family interested in adopting her takes one look at her, they choose not to take her home. Despite this, Bethany never loses hope and believes that someone will come along who will love her despite her imperfections and see how wonderful she is, giving her a forever home.
Bethany desires to be acknowledged for her inner beauty by someone. According to one of her temporary caretakers, there is nothing wrong with Bethany. She even sleeps without snoring. Despite the fact that the shelter staff are familiar with her, some dislike what they have to say about her. They are being truthful when they recommend adopting Bethany as a safe choice. They want to ensure that they are acting morally and responsibly. They have taken her to the vet multiple times and are confident that she is healthy.
Shelter staff stated that if Bethany had been seriously ill, they would have euthanized her, as that is their policy. However, Bethany is wonderful, and I have never met a dog as kind as she is. Many people search for dogs solely to take photos of them and post them on social media to show how beautiful they are, without considering that the smallest animals often require the most love and care because they have gone through the worst.
The caretakers of Bethany are well-aware of her situation and they remain hopeful that someone kind will adopt her, who would look beyond her appearance and recognize her true nature, offering her a loving home.
“If I lived nearby, I wouldn’t hesitate to adopt her. She deserves a loving family despite her looks. I pray that she finds even more happiness and a loving family who will protect her from all harm,” a user on the internet commented.
Just be patient, my dear. Soon, someone who can see beyond your cloudy vision and into the depths of your kind heart will come. Keep doing what you must, no matter how it seems.
