Meet Fiona, an American bulldog puppy with an extraordinary story.
Back in February, the owner of Fiona's pregnant mother brought her to the vet.
When Fiona was born with visible birth defects — a cleft lip and a cleft palate — the owner, who breeds dogs, deemed her not "show quality." He then requested the puppy be euthanized.
How Cruella de Vil-esque! Fortunately, the vet who delivered Fiona reached out to the Sonoma Humane Society, who took the adorable dog in at just 3 hours old.
