With Aardvark, you get exactly what you see: a funny, sweet dog who is just as bad on the inside as he is on the outside.
In January, a Good Samaritan res.cued Aardvark from the streets of Baltimore City and transferred him to the Maryland SPCA (MDSPCA). When the sanctum staff saw a 50-pound dog with a cartoon face and flipper-like paws, they couldn’t believe their eyes.
“Actually, nothing could take him seriously,” Brittany Roger, a digital expert with the MDSPCA, told The Dodo. ” His physical appearance and demeanor elicited a lot of horselaugh.”
The sanctum’s veterinarians examined Aardvark when he was just 8 months old, and his little lower jaw had been with him since birth. “The majority of people believe he was in a car accident,” Roger explained. ” Even so, they’re relieved to learn that he was just born that seductive.”
Aardvark’s facial disfigurement does not appear to bother him or prevent him from being a model citizen. “Not only does he eat well, but he also enjoys biting on effects — in a non-destructive manner,” Roger explained. “He’s happy and healthy, which only adds to his endearing antics.”
The only thing better than Aardvark’s fascinating aesthetics is his laid-back nature. The unusual canine simply appears to be delighted to be in the company of those who keep an eye on him and enjoy his company.
“A lively, joyous, gregarious little boy,” Roger described him. “Since he isn’t bothered by anything, we have a lot of fun dressing him up and taking him around.”
Unfortunately, Aardvark has had a difficult time finding a permanent residence. According to the sanctum, he’s a “one-size-fits-all” canine who’s “so chummy that (he) could come musketeers with a slipup wall,” but implicit adopters keep failing him.
“He’s had a lot of operations,” Roger explained, “but they keep falling through for one reason or another.” ” It isn’t his fault, but he was dealt a bad hand.”
Hopefully, Aardvark will find a home soon and be able to give all of his love to someone who appreciates him for the one-of-a-kind dog that he is.
