We all know that dogs are very popular pets. When dogs were first domesticated, they became part of the community. However, because of the popularity of having dogs as pets, there are so many backyard breeders who will do whatever it takes to make money from this amazing creature.
A lot of backyard breeders don’t have the skills or knowledge in breeding dogs. Inbreeding becomes very common, which usually results in genetic defects, which can severely affect the dog’s quality of life. Most of these dogs are abandoned by the breeder or are euthanized.
A Golden Retriever and Poodle mix dog named Josh, along with his siblings, came from a bad breeder. The result of bad breeding practices led to Josh and his siblings with health problems. Josh never got to be a normal dog.
Josh had trouble walking. He is really wobbly standing up, and whenever Josh tries to walk, he loses balance and falls. When Josh was checked by the veterinarian, he was diagnosed with a condition called cerebral hypoplasia.
Having cerebral hypoplasia meant that Josh is missing part of his brain that is responsible for coordination. Usually, dogs like Josh are euthanized because they can’t live a normal life. Thankfully, a dog trainer named Kimberly Elliot heard about Josh and decided to help him. Kimberely eventually fell in love with Josh, and she and her husband decided to take Josh as a foster.
Eventually, Kimberly and her husband realized that no one would be willing to adopt a special needs dog like Josh. Since they already love Josh, the couple decided to make Josh a permanent part of their family. They adopted him.
Josh loves his new family. He even has a group of doggie siblings to keep him company and to play with. The incredible thing about it all is that Josh’s new doggie siblings help him get around by pulling a trolley with Josh sitting inside.
Kimberly and her husband are thankful that Josh came into their lives. Although it’s challenging taking care of Josh, Kimberly and her husband wouldn’t trade anything in the world for Josh. Here’s a heartwarming video of Josh’s family helping him out to go around.
