JACKSON, Mich. — A Michigan boy found the perfect rescue dog -- a shelter puppy with the same birth defect.
“He Facetimed me. He goes, ‘I think this one has a cleft lip’ and I said ‘get her’! We need her,” mother Ashley Boyers said. “To see him have something in common with a puppy means a lot ’cause he can grow up and understand that he and his puppy both have something that they can share in common.”
The two-month-old puppy’s name has not been released. The Jackson County Animal Shelter said it does not get a lot of puppies with that issue. They said she should not have future health problems, though.
