A father went to the local animal shelter to look at chickens, but instead got an absolutely heartwarming gift for his son with a health condition.
When he saw a black-and-white pup with a cleft lip just like his son’s, he said he was sure knew the cute pup would make a perfect addition to the family.
Little Bentley, who is now aged two, was so delighted to meet his new best friend. Bentley’s mom, Ashley Boyers, is excited about the budding friendship between the pair too.
She explained to ClickOnDetroit that seeing her toddler son “have something in common with a puppy means a lot because he can grow up and understand that he and his puppy both have something that they can share in common.”
The team at Michigan’s Jackson County Animal Shelter is also delighted to see the “instant love” between the two-month-old pup and Bentley.
Sometimes all we need is a little companionship to make even the rarest of conditions easy to live with.
