This noseless, tailless dog with only three legs is one of the happiest dogs we’ve ever seen!

A dog with no nose who was almost put down because nobody wanted her has finally found a home.

Bonnie, a Border Collie cross, was rescued in Romania and was on the verge of being put down due to the extent of the injuries she sustained as a stray.

The pooch was found with her snout missing, leaving a large, open wound, and part of her front left leg missing as well.

Bonnie was brought over to the UK by Beacon Animal Rescue Centre where Kate Comfort, 29, from Canterbury, spotted Bonnie on their Facebook page.

It was love at first site for Kate and Bonnie was officially adopted her a few months later.

Kate, a civil servant, said: ‘We adopted Bonnie from Beacon Animal Rescue Centre which is run by my best friend Rebecca.

‘Rebecca put up a post of her with her beautiful big soulful eyes and huge ears and I just fell in love.

‘I had trouble trying to convince my husband at first – as we already had three dogs – but no one wanted Bonnie so I said that I would foster her until we could find her the perfect home.

‘The fact no one wanted her made me want her more, she was vulnerable and needed love.

‘It turned out that her perfect home was our home and we ended up adopting Bonnie ourselves!’

Kate admits she was alarmed by Bonnie’s appearance at first but grew used to it the more time she spent with the dog.

Kate and her husband, Ross, 31, wanted to gain experience of taking care of dogs with unique needs but ended up falling in love with Bonnie and couldn’t give her up.

Upon the decision to adopt her, they began fundraising for Bonnie to get a prosthetic leg, but the wound on her stump kept opening up.

They were advised to remove it and wished they had done it sooner; Bonnie is now completely pain-free and as agile as the couple’s other dogs.

Kate said: ‘We thought about paying for Bonnie to have the surgery, but once we realised it would have been purely cosmetic and would have made no positive impact on her life then we decided against it.

‘We thought putting Bonnie through an operation to try to make her look more “normal” would have been cruel.

‘Our Bonnie is perfectly imperfect, we love her just how she is and if anyone is offended by how she looks, then that is their problem – not ours.’

Despite some negative comments towards Bonnie, she boasts 14,000 followers on Instagram where she goes by the name of Bonnie the Brave, with her pictures receiving thousands of likes.

Kate added: ‘I originally created an Instagram page for her when we were trying to raise money for her to have surgery but, even though the surgery never took place, her followers have grown and grown and we have been overcome by how much impact Bonnie’s life is having on people.

‘She is an advocate for unique dogs and we have had so much kindness and positivity, it’s just incredible.

‘In person, most people are amazed by her but again, we have had some negative responses.

‘There have been people who have actively shouted and screamed at Bonnie with one person even trying to kick her.

‘People have referred to her as “it” or a “thing” which hurts my feelings as she deserves the same amount of love as any other dog.

It’s not certain what happened to Bonnie’s face with all of her nose and front part of her mouth missing, but they suspect it was done by a human when she was living on the streets.

Kate said: 'Bonnie is one of the best things to happen to us and I'm so glad we gave her the home and family she deserves'

Kate said: ‘We aren’t totally sure what happened to Bonnie, the girl and her mum who found Bonnie thought it was a train because they had seen her there previously.

‘The other suggestion is that an animal did it, perhaps a fox or a wolf or even a human but we simply do not know.

‘Despite this, Bonnie isn’t wary of people, so if it was a human, she is very forgiving.

‘But then again, animals are forgiving creatures – they never fail to amaze me with how tolerant and forgiving they are when subjected to cruelty and abuse.

‘I prefer animals to humans, I wish we were more like them, which is maybe why I surround myself with animals, rather than people.

‘Bonnie is one of the best things to happen to us and I’m so glad we gave her the home and family she deserves.’

“Pawsome Achievement: Service Dog Receives Honorary Diploma for Exceptional Dedication at Owner’s Graduation”

Brittany Hawley’s Incredible Adventure with Her Faithful Sidekick, Griffin 🐕

Let me introduce you to Brittany Hawley, a 25-year-old from North Carolina who has faced tremendous challenges due to a chronic neurological disease that confined her to a wheelchair when she was still in her teens. However, Brittany’s life changed for the better when she applied for a service dog to help her with her daily routines. That’s when she met Griffin, a golden retriever who would become her constant companion. This remarkable duo met through a special program called ‘paws4prison.’ This program trains inmates in West Virginia prisons to train highly skilled assistance dogs. When Brittany and Griffin first met, several dogs were presented to her, but Griffin stood out. Unlike some dogs that were wary of her wheelchair, Griffin jumped straight into Brittany’s lap and showed her affection.

Recently, Brittany accomplished an important goal by completing her master’s degree in occupational therapy from Clarkson University. This was a momentous occasion not only for her but also for her loyal companion, Griffin. Throughout Brittany’s years of study, Griffin played a crucial role in her life, attending classes with her, retrieving her phone, and actively participating in her community activities, social groups, and research projects. Griffin even supported her during her internship at Fort Bragg.
When the four-year-old golden retriever received his honorary diploma, it was a recognition of his “extraordinary effort, steadfast commitment, and diligent dedication to the well-being and student success” that contributed to Brittany’s achievements. Brittany proudly said, “I advocated for Griffin’s graduation from day one. He did everything I did.”

Brittany and Griffin proved to be an invaluable team for soldiers grappling with physical limitations and psycho-social issues. Griffin’s presence was so significant during therapy sessions that patients often referred to him as a co-therapist alongside Brittany. On a daily basis, Griffin helps Brittany with various physical tasks such as opening doors, turning on lights, and retrieving objects indicated by a laser pointer. However, what Brittany values the most about Griffin is his ability to comfort her during times of anxiety and depression, which has helped her manage the constant pain that she experiences. Brittany’s story demonstrates the remarkable impact that service dogs like Griffin can have, thanks to their highly specialized training that equips them to provide assistance and emotional support to individuals with disabilities, mental health conditions, and other qualifying circumstances.

Brittany’s experience with her furry friend, Griffin, is a remarkable testament to the indomitable connection that exists between people and their canine pals. This bond effortlessly overcomes obstacles and acknowledges the influence of willpower and affection. 🌟🐕
