Jubilee, four, had struggled to find a home because of her looks.
Jubilee was born with a strange eye deformity, so strange that no-one wanted her. The Siberian husky was cruelly dumped at a New Jersey shelter because her owner “couldn’t stand the sight” of the poor animal.
After two years went by with no takers the non-profit shelter were desperate to home Jubilee, as we all know what the alternative was…
They decided to post an advert on Facebook, in Jubilee`s “voice”, it went like this (now try not to get upset):
“I came from a ‘breeder’ who couldn’t sell me because he said I was ‘weird’ looking,” the post said. “Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don’t know why I don’t look like them. I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog.”
“I like other dogs, but I don’t like cats,” the post continued. “I love people, but I’m a little shy because people mostly laugh at the way I look. Doesn’t anyone want a funny looking husky? I wish I had a family of my own who could love me even though I’m not pretty.”
Now for the the good news!
Within just a few days there were more than 40,000 shares on the post — the shelter announced that Jubilee would be going home to a loving family.
“Thanks to everyone who shared Jubilee’s story,” the shelter wrote. “She has found her forever home with previous Husky House adopters and joins her new fur-siblings in a wonderful new life!”
Jubilee’s new parents decided to start a Facebook page for her to keep the fans of the now-famous pup in the loop. The page refers to the pup as “a uniquely beautiful furbaby.”
