A young father named Brandon went to Jackson County Animal Shelter in Jackson, Michigan, to look for chickens. When a puppy with a cleft lip caught his eye, he immediately called his wife about it.
Brandon has a cute 2-year-old son named Bentley who has a similar condition. Bentley has undergone 2 operations and will be receiving continuous treatment. Although his condition made him look different from other kids his age, he found a best friend in a puppy with the same condition. A match made in Heaven!
When Brandon called his wife, Ashley, about the puppy with the cleft lip, she immediately knew they had to adopt the dog and add him to the family. She realized that he would be the perfect friend for their son. Bentley Boyers will never feel different and alone having a furry friend with the same condition.
Ashley reportedly said, “He Facetimed me. He goes, ‘I think this one has a cleft lip.’ and I said, ‘Get her! We need her!’”
Bentley’s happiness was over the roof, and he immediately fell in love when he finally met the puppy. Images of the duo were shared on Facebook, and they instantly went viral. It was evident that the little boy and the puppy mutually like each other and immediately become best friends.
According to Click On Detroit, Ashley Boyers quoted, “To see him 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 staff at the shelter were amazed at the immediate chemistry between the little boy and the puppy. Resorting to their Facebook page, they wrote, “It’s so hard to put into words how meaningful this adoption is to all of us, so we are going to let the pictures speak for themselves. ❤️❤️❤️ We wish you many years of joy as this special pair grow up together!”
