: I kept looking at this samoyed boy. He had a disability, but he didn't act like he did or even thought he did, You see Lucky does not have a tongue. Yes , NO tongue! Well just a little bitty triangle of a tongue that was hard to even see when you looked into his mouth. I kept looking at that smilie face saying, I don't want a male dog. But hat face talked to me. I had to have him and convince his rescuers that I truely wanted him up here in Southern Ontario. They pulled him from the kill shelter just in time. The shelter kept extending his time. He had more time than most dogs ever had. His rescuers ended up having to pull, something like 22 teeth before he came up to me. Lack of a tongue causes the saliva to sit around his teeth too much making his gums very sore and red (gingivitis to extreme). The rescue group conducted a donation page for him to pay off his bills and even flight him up to me. When I got him he was maybe 2 to 3 year old. He was way too thin (skin and bones). He weighed just under 30 lbs. By the end of the year, I had him at 54 lbs. He sure gets his drool on when food is presented to him. This Samoyed was truly lucky to have so many people love him although I feel I was the luckiest to be able to be his Mom.
