Puppies born with congenital issues are often dumped in shelters because their owners are unable to care for them. Usually, these puppies are euthanized and don’t get a chance to grow old and experience what having a family is all about. However, a woman named Rachele Keech knows that these puppies can find the perfect forever homes despite their condition.
So, Rachele founded the Cleft Pub Brigade. Her rescue organization focuses on rescuing puppies born with cleft palates. She also takes in puppies in need of forever homes. Since Rachele founded the rescue organization, she saved and re-homed countless puppies. She thought she’d seen everything until she met Earl, the Rottweiler puppy.
Earl was abandoned in a shelter by an unknown person. She soon found that Earl had a variety of congenital issues that prevented him from having a good quality of life. During the first 24 hours, Earl lived under Rachele’s care, he appeared tired and didn’t want to move.
This was highly unusual for a puppy. However, Rachele saw that Earl was a little more active the next day. Rachele visited the veterinarian to have Earl checked, and that’s when she received the bad news. Earl didn’t just have a cleft palate, but he also had a small windpipe that made him struggle to breathe.
The veterinarian told Rachele that Earl’s life would be challenging and that it would be better for him to b euthanized. Rachele was emotional after hearing this news, but she decided that Earl should live. She posted Earl’s story on the internet, which was eventually viewed by his future family.
Eventually, Earl was fostered by Crystal and Max Cook, who soon became Earl’s new mom and brother. They initially fostered Earl knowing about his condition. They didn’t know if Earl will live, but they still took care of the little puppy, showering him with love and affection.
Crystal and Max soon found that Earl started recovering slowly. Earl was getting better every day, and he was also a lot more playful. Earl’s second foster family eventually decided to adopt him for good. Watch this heartwarming video showing Earl’s journey to find a forever home.
