A message posted on Facebook to help a dog with deformity get adopted moves thousands of Internet users

Certain animals considered to be different are often victims of rejection. Pepo had the painful experience of it. The dog suffers from multiple deformities, which made his adoption difficult.

To contemplate Pepo is to contemplate a crooked muzzle, jaw and paws. The animal was rescued by a charity, Animal Angels Global of Sussex, after it was found begging for food on the streets in Spain. He certainly suffered abuse as a puppy, as scans showed signs of fractures.

Volunteers repatriated him to the UK for rehousing and treatment. Unfortunately, not everything went as planned.

The Spaniel has been rejected by many potential adopters, because of his unusual physique. The wait lasted several months. Faced with this failure, the members of the organization tried to take action on social networks.
