A Siberian husky named Jubilee whose breeder dumped her at a New Jersey shelter because of her "weird" eyelid deformity now has a forever home - after her story and photos went viral. The post said that her breeder was unable to sell her due to her "weird" looking eyes.
The shelter added that despite the appearance of her eyelids, Jubilee doesn't exhibit any other health issues.
"She's really such an awesome dog who was so deserving of her forever home".
A wide-eyed husky who was given up by a breeder because she looked "weird" has been adopted after spending two years at a shelter.
Heartfelt plea: 'Doesn't anyone want a amusing looking husky?
"I wish I was handsome so someone would want me to be their dog", wrote "Jubilee" in her heartbreaking adoption appeal that was posted by Husky House on Facebook Wednesday.
It was shared almost 50,000 times on Facebook, while one of the images received 125,000 upvotes on Reddit after a user posted it with a caption saying Jubilee "just happens to look like bad taxidermy". "I love people, but I'm a little shy because people mostly laugh at the way I look".
Fans began sending in their Jubilee-inspired artwork to Husky House to show their support for "Team Jubilee", a charitable group started to raise money for the organization's adoptable dogs. She has found her forever home with previous Husky House...
On Saturday, Husky House announced that Jubilee had found her forever home.
The shelter even arranged a bit of a make-over for Jubilee, thanks to a nearby grooming center that volunteered its services.
The world similarly fell in love with another dog last week when her adoption story was posted on Facebook.
"She has been thoroughly checked out by our vets", one of the shelter's representatives told CNN. No one had ever before submitted an application to adopt her.
Congrats Jubilee! And thanks for your good work, Husky House.
