Puppy Born with Two Legs and Other Defects Sparks Debate on Whether He Should Be Put Down or Not

Should Bonsai be saved?

Mini Malabanan





Born with two legs and various congenital defects, Bonsai the English Bulldog puppy never had it easy since day one.

Although his two stunted lame hind legs had been amputated, other operations still await Bonsai as he has a short crooked spine, a dysfunctional pelvis, splayed front legs, and sacs of fluid inside his body.  Since his front legs exhibit “Swimmer Puppy” syndrome, Bonsai is unable to stand on his front legs properly.

As a result, his internal organs experience extra pressure. It is believed that the large internal sacs of fluid inside his body may have caused it.

The poor rescue puppy, who was born to English bulldog breeders in Arkansas, is being supported by Friends Of Emma, an organisation that helps dogs with congenital problems. Donations will help cover for his medical bills and other necessities such as wipes and diaper.

Although many Internet users have expressed their interest in helping Bonsai, some pointed out that it would be selfish to keep the puppy alive as it will struggle for the rest of his life. Some even suggested to spend the donations on healthy dogs that need to be saved instead.

Jeff Lebowsky commented on an article on Bored Panda: “Sometimes you have to let it go… don’t play the “god game”, don’t f*ck with natural selection.”

Do you think it’s unfair to keep Bonsai alive?

“In a natural environment that dog wouldn’t stand a chance, I am not sure this is really a good thing to force this little creature to live to be honest,” Guillaume Lombard commented.

Although couples are usually brought together by same interests, it is not uncommon to see couples who do not agree on all things. While it may cause fights and misunderstandings, these differences teach couples to be more patient and to love unconditionally -- to compromise and to find ways to satisfy the needs and wants of each other. But for one German man, his idea of getting a compromise is far beyond amiable.

A 23-year-old man was fined for drugging his 24-year-old girlfriend just so he could play video games all night.

One night in August 2014, the girlfriend got home from a 10-hour shift at work. She wanted to spend the entire night in a sound and peaceful sleep. But because the boyfriend and his friend had already planned an all-nigter with the Xbox, they had to find a way to continue with their plan. And so the boyfriend, who was then on drugs, decided to put his girlfriend in deep sleep through the help of drugs.
