Did you think that looks-based bias is only limited to humans? Well, you better reconsider that thought! Read through this story and you will know how discrimination on grounds of looks can also be a behavioral trait amongst animals, or more particularly, dogs! Check it out!
When Bjarni was found wandering the streets, his original family was located, but sadly, they didn't want him back. The pup has only half a nose, but his smile is big and bright. Bjarni's sinus cavities are covered, and it makes eating and drinking a challenge. With money made from a fundraiser, he is undergoing surgeries to reconstruct his sniffer, and will be ready to find a permanent home in a couple of months.
Anne Graber, founder of Texas rescue St. Francis' Angels testifies to Bjarni's loving nature, "He is totally unaware of his limitations and disfigurement…he loves everything that moves."
