Daily Cute: Gertie the Cleft Palate Puppy Slurps Up Fresh Water

Daily Cute: Gertie the Cleft Palate Puppy Slurps Up Fresh Water

This adorable puppy, Gertie, was born with a cleft palate and was found in a dumpster when she was just one day old. She was taken to the Mia Foundation, and then got adopted. Don’t feel too bad for her – she’s found a loving home and enjoying life.

No need to worry about the diaper, either – Gertie is in a hotel room and only 8 weeks old here and is still working on her potty training.
