A dog given up due to his severe facial deformity has been saved from euthanasia and is all set for a loving new family, all thanks to Luvable Dog Rescue in Oregon, USA.
Picasso is a ten-month-old Corgi-Pit Bull cross, and was born with a twisted, misaligned jaw, which gives him a very lopsided look. This meant he wasn't easy to sell; instead, Picasso was given up to the pound by his breeder, along with his litter brother, who has been named Pablo.
After learning the pair were on the pound's euthanasia list, volunteers at Luvable Dog Rescue stepped in. Picasso is now waiting to have a tooth sorted out, but luckily it seems his problem is fairly cosmetic; Picasso can eat quite happily, and seems none the wiser to his abstract profile!
His uniqueness has garnered Picasso quite a following across Luvable Dog Rescue's social media channels, and propelled him into international news. All this attention means he is more or less guaranteed a fantastic new home, as offers flood in for both him and his brother.
