The internet sure does love its puppies, and its latest animal obsession has an incredible story to share with the world. Meet Bonsai, a rescued English bulldog who suffered some serious health complications in his young life. According to Distractify, Bonsai was born with half a spine, a pelvis that did not work, and back legs that could not support his body. Bonsai has since had his back legs amputated, which has prompted his caregivers to affectionately nickname him "half the bulldog with twice the love." Just one look at that sweet face and you'll see why:
The three month old Bonsai has a lot of people who love him (not to mention over 2,000 Instagram followers and 29,000 Facebook friends!) but he's unfortunately not out of the woods just yet. Bonsai still has a lot of health complications, and they are costly. The rescue organization Friends of Emma in Fort Worth, Texas, who took in Bonsai when he was barely four weeks old, is now calling for donations in order to provide Bonsai with the care he needs. (Obviously, he doesn't need any help in the adorable department.)
If you are interested in helping Bonsai get healthy, you can go to Bonsai's funding page, located here at Pet Caring.
