ONE HAPPY dog had a rough start in life, after being diagnosed with a fatal disease. Murray the Weimaraner was found as a puppy with his three siblings on Dead Dog Beach in Puerto Rico. The name 'Dead Dog Beach' is attributed to this spot because it is a well known dumping spot for stray animals. Whilst in Puerto Rico, Murray and his siblings showed signs of distemper, a virus that is fatal to most dogs as it affects their respiratory and nervous symptoms. Murray was due to be euthanised, however after a wag of his tail - the vet changed their mind and did what they could to treat him. Due to the virus, Murray now has no teeth, causing his tongue to flop out of his mouth. He also has bone deformation that makes him look a little different. But this didn't stop him from being adopted by Mackenzie Gallant and her family.
