Amazing Little Puppy

I just had to share this story with you. From our PNW Border Collie Rescue Idaho page.

Meet Cappy



(text below copied and pasted from Cappy's bio)

"Cappy's litter was bred by a rancher in Twin Falls, Idaho. When this rancher feeds his pups he just puts out cans of Alpo with the lids removed. Cappy got his head stuck in a can at the age of 6 weeks and was left that way for about 12 hours until the rancher found him. Cappy is now blind due to a lack of oxygen while the can was stuck on his head.



The Rancher was going to shoot Cappy. A kind family took him in to save his life. Now Cappy is in foster care with the Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group.



This is a bright, confident pup, not at all 'disabled', no baggage. He is happy and outgoing, yet careful, loves other dogs and adores people. He will need a safe environment and other dogs that are tolerant of his puppy antics. Also, a human that is patient. We are certain this little pup can learn anything if given the opportunity. He is very smart and happy. We are estimating his date of birth as
04/19/09."


See Cappy's video. It is amazing watching this to think this little guy is completely blind. This brought tears to my eyes...

To think that today I complained about the traffic, prices of tomatoes, my pants not fitting, my feet hurting (because I am too fat)...then I watched that video.

Watching that little guy so happy, running around playing without a care in the world, completely unaware of any disability or disadvantage...it is simply humbling.

I am crying (again! and always over an animal!) - Cappy is so sweet and looks happy at play. I pray he finds a good home. I also pray the world is rid of irresponsible pet owners one day!!

What a stunning Border Collie! He's just adorable, and it's such as shame that an idiot was too lazy to dole the food into a bowl.

Diane said...

That brings tears to my eyes :(
How cruel- someone should stick the rancher's head in a Costco sized can and leave it stuck there...
Well, Cappy is going to have a better life than he would have if he'd have stayed with that idiot!

Awww! Absolutely ADORABLE puppy! I would scoop him up in a heartbeat if I could. I hope he finds his forever home soon...he definitely deserves the best one after an experience like that.

OMG. I can't finish watching that video. I hate people. Seriously. I agree with Diane about putting the rancher's head in a can.

I loved the video and it bring tears. Tears because there are more caring people that will help Cappy enjoy his life as he is doing in the video.

The rancher is an absolute idiot.
