Amazing Photos Of A Hurricane Harvey Rescue Puppy, 2 Months Later
Balto the puppy's life was never going to be easy. Born the runt in a litter of five, Balto lived in a run-down trailer park in Houston for the first month of his life. And then Hurricane Harvey hit the city.
This hard-luck pup had some good luck during the storm: he was discovered, along with his parents and siblings, by some caring Houstonians, who brought them to the vet who helped save their lives. All the puppies were diagnosed with a variety of conditions due to experience of the storm and the neglect they had suffered prior, but these tough little guys pulled through. Balto had some help with his recovery after he met his future mom, Anna. A friend of the group who rescued Balto and his family, Anna visited the pups and fell in love with the runt. Eventually, she took him home.
A few months have passed, and despite frequent vet visits and some muscle weakness, Balto is thriving. "Now he's almost a little too comfortable running around in our house," Anna jokes.
Take a look at these amazing photos of Balto, and you'll understand why rescue pups are often the most wonderful pets!
