The story of the little bulldog Lenny the Lentil is warming animal hearts around the world.
Lentil was born with facial deformities such as making sure he must eat through a tube and the owner gave him up and delivered him to The Animal Rights group in New Jersey.
The organisation decided to make an effort for the small puppy, and after publishing articles in the media, the little dog has got sponsors from around the world.
Lentil was born with cleft lip, and according to the group that takes care of him, life has been hard. He could not stay long enough with her mother, and the odds were against him during his youth.
The story seems to trigger strong commitment. The interest is huge from around the world.
– Cute Little Lentil: You are an amazing little guy. Thanks to your wonderful foster mother that loves you and takes good care of you. We will send a gift to you too. Be big and strong, little man! writes as Rogue and Odie Rice.
Lentil has got his own blog and is on Facebook, too. The last blog post title is “Lentil is five weeks old now”. The foster mother is amazed by the attention from the whole world, but claims that it’s time consuming for her.
– As a nurse, I try to do everything at once. Main concern is to keep him alive, but when I post a picture and get over 100 likes in a short time, it really is something that helps us to keep going.
