While this ᴀɪʟᴍᴇɴᴛ can happen to different animals and does not ᴄᴀᴜsᴇ ᴅɪsᴄᴏᴍꜰᴏʀᴛ, it ᴍᴀᴋᴇs ʟɪꜰᴇ much more ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛᴇᴅ and ʀᴇᴅᴜᴄᴇs the pets’ chance of adopted.

“It was a miracle that Picasso sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇᴅ being a baby because it would have been ᴛᴏᴜɢʜ for him to even ɴᴜʀsᴇ from his mother,” Liesl said, “Newt has had many more ᴄʜᴀʟʟᴇɴɢᴇs, surprisingly the bigger ᴄʜᴀʟʟᴇɴɢᴇs not being ᴄᴀᴜsᴇᴅ by his ʟᴀᴄᴋ of ᴜᴘᴘᴇʀ ᴊᴀᴡ.”

Both of these precious dogs now live happy ʟɪᴠᴇs ᴅᴇsᴘɪᴛᴇ the ʜᴀʀᴅsʜɪᴘs ᴄᴀᴜsᴇᴅ by their ᴅᴇꜰᴏʀᴍɪᴛɪᴇs.

Picasso Loved Newt From The Beginning

“Both Picasso and Newt adore people, so in public, they are very outgoing and seek attention and love to greet people.” said Liels, “Most people do immediate double takes and then sᴛᴀʀᴇ at the dogs for a while, trying to make sense of what they are seeing.”

“They are not in any ᴘᴀɪɴ; they have adapted to their physical ᴄʜᴀʟʟᴇɴɢᴇs and do almost everything they want to do.”

“Picasso loved Newt from the beginning because Newt loves to play and ᴡʀᴇsᴛʟᴇ and is so good-natured. This friendship has deepened as Newt matured,” said Liesl. “I love Picasso and Newt with all my heart. They are both incredibly loving, happy, intelligent, and funny dogs.” she continued.

Liesl Wilhardt was willing to give her followers a glimpse into the life and friendship that her two ᴍᴀʟꜰᴏʀᴍᴇᴅ companions have through video clips of their daily activities, such as feeding and playing with each other, as well as hikes and harvesting berries.

Picasso even has an Instagram account, which has close to 400,000 followers.

“It is an extraordinary dog, with an exceptional temperament,” Liesl spoke in 2017, “I just fell in love with him as soon as I saw him. He is training as a certified ᴛʜᴇʀᴀᴘʏ dog and also serves as a Luvable Dog Rescue ambassador.”

She said that at the time, Picasso spent his days helping those with ᴅɪsᴀʙɪʟɪᴛɪᴇs or ɪʟʟɴᴇssᴇs as part of Liesl’s rescue program.

“I love this boy so much, and he’s had a ʀᴏᴜɢʜ ʟɪꜰᴇ so far. I want the rest of his ʟɪꜰᴇ to be amazing,”
