She Delivered Tiniest One-Eared Runt That Could Only Walk Backward

Most people would look at Van Gogh and feel sorry for this one-eared pup. Little do they know, that despite all of his challenges, he’s one of the luckiest dogs on the planet.

Born with only one ear and facing a lifetime of challenges, Van Gogh was born in his foster mom’s house, where he was loved enough to flourish.

His foster mom knew he was different from the moment he was born. She was very attentive and provided him with the love and encouragement he needed.

His foster mom knew that his fate was uncertain and the first few months would be difficult for both of them. The challenges she knew they would face together would not deter her.

Despite Van Gogh’s challenges of not being able to walk and getting pushed out of the way for normal feedings, this pup was a fighter!

Thanks to his foster mom bottle feeding him anywhere from four to five times a day, he began to perk up after a couple of weeks. Unable to walk, he would roll around to try and be mobile.

Thanks to his determination and a foster mom that wouldn’t give up on him, he began gaining strength in his back legs.

This allowed him to be able to scoot backward or go in reverse, as his foster mom says.

Facing challenges that most puppies don’t have to go through, Van Gogh continued to push through and figure this life thing out. He continued to grow stronger and went from only going in reverse to walking and running forward!

After being introduced to his four-legged foster siblings, he fell in love, and always wanted to run with the pack.

As if his story wasn’t heartwarming enough, Van Gogh’s foster mom knew she was the best person for him and became his forever mom!

What could have been a life of challenges has turned into a life of love, acceptance, and perseverance.
