All dogs are worthy of love and a good home, no matter what they look like. But sometimes it can be hard for “different” looking dogs to find acceptance.
But one dog’s inspiring story shows that there are people willing to look beneath appearances to see the beautiful dog underneath… and the great things that they can do.
Brodie, a German Shepherd and border collie mix, had a very sad start to life: as a young puppy he was attacked by his own mother. The attack left him with severe cranial and facial injuries, according to Metro.
He is now partially blind and has a permanently slanted face.

Valentine’s Day is coming up, so it’s a great time to talk about love!! This mug from @groundsandhounds speaks volumes. A dogs love is unconditional. They don’t judge us, or themselves. You can be at your absolute worst and your dog will still be by your side and love you with everything they got! Brodie is the perfect example of this. Even though he’s been through some tough times himself, he radiates love and happiness. So always remember to “love like a dog!”🐶❤️🥰 @groundsandhounds is an amazing company that not only makes delicious coffee and cute mugs, but 20% of their profits go towards helping fund rescue initiatives for dogs! Every cup helps a pup, and every pound helps a hound! My morning coffee tastes so much better knowing that. ☺️
Young Brodie spent the early days of his life recovering, but while he survived, sadly things did not get much easier from there.
He was adopted as a puppy from the kennel, but was soon returned for being “too hyper.”
The kennel tried to find Brodie another home, but despite their efforts it didn’t seem like anyone wanted him.
