When Krysten Harper from Alabama, US, first saw Little Buddy and Aster Rose, two Australian shepherds with deformities, she fell in love with them. They both were produced by some negligent breeders which led them to have lifetime disability. Little Buddy and Aster Rose, the cute dogs, were born blind and deaf.

In the world of dog breeding, carelessness can cause serious problems and even might be harmful to the health of puppies. It happens when two merle breeds are coupled together. Though both pups seem like twins, they are not related to each other and didn’t even get together until Krysten adopted them 2 months ago.

Krysten met Little Buddy, a tiny Australian Shepherd, at a rescue facility, and she immediately fell in love with him. Buddy had spent his previous two years in the kennels and due to spending much time at a place, he had acquired arthritis in his rear legs.

Krysten brought him home, but she didn’t know how to live with a crippled dog. It was the first time when she discovered many things about a poor little dog. Little Buddy only slept in corners or beneath beds or sofas. He would wake up in the middle of the night, crying out in pain. It seemed like he was dealing with mental trauma due to his previous life experiences. He was afraid of the shadows and wouldn’t leave his place after the sunset. 

Krysten said that he was scared all the time, but despite these things, he was the most charming creature she had ever met. She was attempting every day to aid Buddy and bring him happiness and acceptance for life.

Krysten said that teaching Aster, a small puppy who can’t see or hear, to use the stairs might seem simple, but it’s actually a big deal. Krysten, who takes care of Aster, says that for a puppy like her, stairs can be really tough to get. Since after can’t hear or see, they communicate through touch. Krysten gently taps Aster’s lower back to tell her to “sit”, and when she puts her hand on Aster’s chest, it means “stay”. It’s a unique way of teaching that works really well for them.
