Each dog is different. We are extremely fortunate to be able to have them in our lives. Often there is a dog born with a sense that exceed those of a regular dog. This is the tale of Aladdin who is a truly exceptional dog. Aladdin is a Pit Bull who has had rough past. They terribly neglected the Pit Bull. Aladdin was hungry after they placed him in a shelter to assassinate. He was missing 12 teeth and had serious orthopedic difficulties.
The lovely Pit Bull is unable to flex his hind legs. In order to compensate for his problems, he lays, sits and walks in a bizarre style. Fortunately, his new mother, Michele, stumbled found him at the shelter and immediately fell over him instantly!
In the clip below, she describes how regardless of what he’d been through and the obvious plight he was in. He waggled his tail at the first time they met! Certified as a therapy dog within one year after his adoption. It was due to his remarkable ability to make connections with people. He’s a huge fan of children. Even when the room is full of individuals, Aladdin is able to find a solution for the person who needs help the most. It’s not clear that he is the one who appears to be able recognize the emotional pain of those around him. Maybe it’s because of his prior experiences. Maybe it’s because the deformed legs of his are inflicting him agony.
After shootings in the Orlando club shootings in the night, Aladdin was on the scene. He fought himself through the crowd and walked up to the man. It was difficult to determine who was inside the club or waiting for help since the crowd was so large. Aladdin however, on the contrary on the other hand, was aware! He walked over to a man , who said, “This dog looked at me and understood that I required him.” They found him in the club and Aladdin recognized the need of the man to feel safe. It was a touching moment.
This amazing dog is not just able to heal people, but can also soothe dogs who have been abused or even traumatized. Even with all that Aladdin is doing for dogs and humans he has to combat the stigma associated with being a dog breed. His mother is familiar about how hard it is. Children are enticed to pet Aladdin however, once parents inquire about his breed and discover that he’s Pit Bull, they will hesitant to pet him. They will remove their children from Aladdin. Michele the mother of Aladdin is working hard to change this! She enjoys dressing him in order to help make him accessible, even if she must dress him up!
Aladdin has also earned recognition. He was honored when the American Humane Association named him “Therapy Dog of the Year.” For Aladdin it was a pivotal moment. A gentleman was in the audience at the banquet and congratulated Michele. He asked if he could perform surgery on Aladdin at no cost. The doctor convinced that he could alleviate the majority of his orthopedic pain. What’s not to love? It’s amazing!
Aladdin continues and we’re certain it’ll continue to improve. We’re completely amazed at Aladdin ability to communicate with people as well as other dogs who are in need. Don’t miss out by not watching the clip below. It’s truly inspiring. We’re hoping Pit Bulls like Aladdin get the recognition that they deserve.
Every dog is special and should not be judged as a whole based on breed stereotypes!
