Two adorable dogs who have severe facial deformities together create an enduring bond that makes you think about yourself.

Not all dogs have best friends, and not all of them are capable of making them. However, you’ll be surprised to see a special pair of dogs in this story, which makes you reflect on humanity.

Five-year-old pooch Picasso was born with a twisted snout while his new best pal Newt, one, was left with no upper jaw after being bitten by his mum as a pup. Despite their severe facial deformities, these two dogs have become inseparable best friends.

Liesl Wilhardt, 53, founder and director of Lovable Dog Rescue, has shared a glimpse into the unbreakable friendship of two dogs, Picasso, and Newt. Both pooches have severe facial deformities, but still lead happy lives on 55 acres of land at their home in Oregon, U.S.

Liesl adopted Picasso in 2017 after his brother suddenly died and later adopted Newt in 2021, and before long the two became inseparable. Despite daily challenges as a result of their deformities and Newt’s medical issues, the pair now lead very happy lives.

We get to see their friendship in a series of clips from their day-to-day activities, including feeding, playing together, walks, and picking berries.

Liesl said: “It was a miracle that Picasso survived being a baby, because it would have been very hard for him to even nurse from his mom. Newt has had many more challenges, surprisingly the bigger challenges not being caused by his lack of upper jaw.”

“Both Picasso and Newt adore people, so in public they are very outgoing and seek attention and love to greet people. Most people do immediate double takes and then stare at the dogs for a while, trying to make sense of what they are seeing. They are not in any pain; they have adapted to their physical challenges and do almost everything they want to do. Picasso loved Newt from the beginning because Newt loves to play and wrestle and is so good-natured. This friendship has deepened as Newt matured. I absolutely love Picasso and Newt with all my heart, they are both incredibly loving, happy, intelligent, and funny dogs.”
