Each dog is stunning. These are nonetheless magnificent animals that should be appreciated, despite any specific needs, long-lasting scars, or unusual traits. Inadvertently left behind at a shelter was one dog by the name of Walter. A particular animal lover's heart was broken by the reasons the dog was frequently disregarded. A volunteer welcomed the animal lover, a woman by the name of Gabby, to the shelter where she was already saving another dog. Walter was there when Gabby arrived.
Hey Gabby, you have to see this dog, the volunteer exclaimed. The volunteer believed that Gabby would be able to help Walter find a forever home since she helped dogs with unique needs. Gabby could tell the strange dog was anything but ordinary as soon as she set eyes on him. This small a dog or one with such a bad underbite had never been seen by her. Moreover, his legs and spine clearly displayed abnormalities. No one bothered Gabby. In order to introduce herself, she wanted to hold Walter.
In addition to realizing that Walter was unique and special to her, Gabby also understood the bleak facts. Walter would either take a very long time to find a home at the shelter or be put to death because he has special needs and is very difficult to place. When passing by Walter's kennel, the majority of people scowled. The dog was considered to be unattractive by a few people. not Gabby though! He was amazing, in her opinion.
The good-natured lady knew then that she had to take Walter home and adopt him herself. The canine's "defects" were quickly ignored by Gabby. Walter seemed spotless to her. It didn't matter that he didn't look like other dogs or that he wouldn't live a long life; what mattered was that he was capable of loving, and Gabby was capable of providing him with a pleasant life.
Mucopolysaccharidosis, or MPS VI, is a rare genetic disease that Walter carries. It is a fatal condition that worsens over time, regrettably. This means that even though Walter might not live a long life, he could still lead a good life. Gabby could tell right away that Walter is extraordinary when they went home together. All the time, he is happy. He's determined to walk as much as he can and even try to run at times. Walter continued to move despite the strain it was placing on his body. That pleased Gabby, too!
When Walter returned home, Gabby initially concentrated on physical therapy in a small kiddie pool. It delighted Walter. Additionally, his physique was greatly strengthened by the water. Soon it would be time to attack the yard. Walter was determined to reach his mother, who had been encouraging him the entire time, and he didn't let anything stand in his way.
Because her father died from Multiple Sclerosis, Gabby attributes her closeness to Walter to him. She reveals in the video below that her father had a similar disability toward the end of his life but was still incredibly strong. Because of this, Gabby developed a completely new perspective on people and animals who face difficulties but persevere despite them. Gabby thought of her father when she saw Walter and his positive outlook. The same things applied to her father.
