Boy With Cleft Lip Finds Companion In Puppy With Cleft Lip

A Michigan boy with a cleft lip found his perfect companion: a tiny puppy who also has a cleft lip.

Brandon Boyer went to the Jackson County Animal Shelter in Michigan to look at chickens when a 2-month-old puppy with a cleft lip caught his eye.

He knew they had to bring her home to show his 2-year-old son Bentley he isn’t alone.

“To see him have something in common with a puppy means a lot because he can grow up and understand that he and his puppy both have something that they can share in common,” said Bentley’s mother, Ashley.

The shelter posted heartwarming photos of Bentley and his new best friend to their official Facebook account.

“It’s so hard to put into words how meaningful this adoption is to all of us so we are going to let the pictures speak for themselves,” the shelter said.

“Introducing Bentley and his new puppy. At 2 years old and with surgeries already under his belt for his cleft lip, Bentley found his match today in this tiny pup who also has a cleft lip.

They instantly loved each other. We wish many years of joy as this special pair grow up together!”
