Arrow is a little dog who, although he is now as happy as his videos and photographs show, his beginning in life was one of the most difficult and heartbreaking.
Anyone who would have seen him in his depressing state when he was just a puppy would have condemned him to certain death.
But, he never imagined that destiny would send him true angels as parents , who would not care about his deformity – shocking for many – and would love him just as he is.
The little dog with a stupid tongue and crooked jaw suffered a sad attack by another dog
There they discovered that his jaw was terribly broken, which coincided with a strong bite he received from another canine . Unfortunately, his lower right jaw could no longer be saved.
It was so necrotic and severely infected that it smelled like a rotting corpse. So her only option was to remove the dead bone.
The vets had no choice but to remove the entire lower right side of his jaw and also cut off part of the upper right side.
Dr. Sidhu, from Bakersfield, California, was the hero who performed a delicate, hours-long surgery on Arrow. He would not leave until he saved her life and devotedly cared for the little puppy.
Although the attack he received would leave irreversible consequences on his face , that did not happen with his personality, totally bright and bubbly since he was little.
After 5 months of the operation, the little dog with a different face was the happiest he could imagine, not only because he recovered wonderfully, but because he found true love with his new family.
His story went viral thanks to a beautiful video that reveals his sad beginning, but above all, the great warrior and creature of light that he became thanks to so much love that surrounded him at all times.
Arrow loves to eat, play fetch, learn new tricks, drink water while making a mess…
Although his favorite activities are cuddling, giving slobbery kisses, taking naps, sleeping a little more in the morning, and accompanying his parents on long night walks.
But, what he loves most above all things, if he ever gets it, is waking up next to his human father in his huge bed.
Regardless of his physical defect, and the limitations he may have, his family adores him that way. Because, although he is already 2 years old, Arrow never left his puppy personality behind.
He has always remained active and playful at all hours of the day, and he truly knows that he is the most loved in his home, he takes advantage of that and “does whatever he wants.”
“Arrow started out having the worst weeks of his life, fast forward to how you see him today, giving us smiles from ear to ear, with his rag tongue and everything, but he loves life and has made our family complete,” said his owner
Even though they are used to having to pick up the hundreds of croquettes that fall out of his crooked mouth when he eats, chasing him around the house and having to clean everything every time he makes a mess, his owner wouldn’t change it for anything. .
The story of the beautiful Arrow is a clear example that physical appearance has nothing to do with the true value of a dog or a person. In a phrase from The Little Prince, nothing is as true as that “What is essential is invisible to the eyes!”, Don’t you believe it?
