Vet Saves Chocolate Lab Puppy No Bigger Than Chocolate Milkshake From Euthanasia And Then Adopts It

 Bronson The puppy was one of a litter of nine puppies delivered by c-section to a chocolate lab.

However, the owners made the decision to put him down when they learned he had a cleft palate.

Although cleft palate puppies don't have the best prognosis, one veterinary technician was determined to give him a second chance at life.

She wrote on Imgur, "Knowing the sucker I was, another vet tech got the family to sign over the puppy and got me to foster the puppy." The user, who goes by Kaffekalle, also explains why puppies are frequently put to death for what seems to be a minor flaw. Puppies typically do not thrive, depending on the severity of the cleft and whether it affects the hard or soft palate. Because of the gap in the roof of their mouth, they cannot properly suckle and eventually perish from starvation.

For a week, she took him to work and fed him via feeding tube every 1-2 hours.

The veterinarian was forced to adopt Bronson once it was determined that he would live.

We really can't blame her, given how adorable he is!
