Even Though Brodie Got His Face Disfigured and Partially Blind As A Baby By His Mother, Today He’s Trained To Become A Therapy Dog

Brodie is a special dog. The German shepherd and border collie mix bravely survived an attack by his own mother at the fragile age of 13 days. But the attack left the pup partially blind and with a permanently disfigured face. Brodie since then looks a bit like a Picasso masterpiece, but is all the more adorable, making everyone fall in love with his big heart and strong spirit.

Luckily, Brodie is now living happily with his new forever family, Amanda Richter and her boyfriend Brad Ames. The pup is loved by virtually anyone he comes by, and owns an Instagram account with 159K followers. Also, Brodie is now being trained as a therapy dog. “We hope to train him to be a therapy dog one day so he can help other people with disabilities,” said Amanda, who assured Brodie’s fans that he is happy as ever.

When Brodie was just 13 days old, he suffered severe cranial and facial injuries after being attacked by his mother. As the pup grew, his jaw fused together, leaving his face disfigured and causing partial blindness.

Initially, Brodie seemed to find his forever family after his first adoption. But soon, his previous owner decided to return the pup to Old MacDonald Kennels in Alberta, Canada, saying that he was “too hyper.”

Luckily, Brodie soon found a new forever family who don’t care about about his odds and believe he was meant for them.

Brodie’s story melt the heart of millions, but his new forever family Amanda Richter, 30, and boyfriend Brad Ames, 23, were particularly touched.

After seeing the photo the pup online, they fell in love in an instant. They traveled to the shelter and adopt him on the same day, and since then, they’ve been inseparable.

“He’s definitely hyper, but he is so intelligent. His brain is perfectly fine and he learns tricks within 10 minutes, usually, which tells me he is a smart boy,” Amanda told Metro.

And this adorable, brave pup is now being trained to become a therapy dog so that he can help anyone living with a disability.

Before becoming part of his forever family, Brodie was once adopted by a person who gave him back due to the pup’s endless energy.

His mom is now helping him train to be a therapy dog and help others with disabilities and visible differences. “He just needed patience and someone to be consistent,” Amanda said, but added that Brodie is really talented and gets better every week.

These are photos of Brodie as a baby living in the rescue shelter.
