Whether we like it or not, a lot of people judge others by the way they look. Undoubtedly, this is cruel. Not only is it very hurtful, but it can significantly affect the quality of one’s life. And it’s not just with humans; dogs are clear targets of these snap judgments. One dog got even thrown out of a truck window because of the way he looked.
When Delta was born, she looked very different from the rest of the litter. She was the runt, and she required special needs. Because of this, her owner decided that she was too much work to handle, so they abandoned her. When the poor pup was chucked outside to the unknown world, someone saw her predicament and quickly picked her up and brought her to animal control.
Discovering that a special needs dog was in dire need of saving, Michelle Thomas rushed to the center. A foster associated with the New Life Dog rescue organization, Michelle knew that these types of dogs would not last in the shelter. So she drove four hours all the way from Tamp to Miami. She just felt that this dog needed her.
As soon as she arrived at the shelter, she filled out the forms and took the dog back home. She saw that the dog was wrapped the dog in a red airline blanket from Delta Air, so she decided to give her that name.
Michelle doted on Delta, she was always by her side, catering to her every need. Delt became stronger, but her appearance didn’t seem to make much improvement. When Delts was four-months-old, she barely grew, despite all the care given to her. She had difficulties in breathing and finishing her meals. So Michelle decided to consult a vet.
Delta underwent extensive testing to discover her mystery dilemma. Vets found that the puppy had Canine Dwarfism. Not only that, but Delta also had the brachycephalic syndrome, which means she would require an operation to help her breathe easier. It meant a costly procedure, but luckily, NLDR pitched in and help raised funds for her.
The operation was a success. Delta is now living a life that many dogs would envy. She may never grow as big as other Pit Bulls, but it doesn’t matter. She is happy as she could ever be with her mom. Life may have been hard on Delta in the beginning, but with lots of love, she has become an inspiration.
