Shi Tzu Makes His Young Human Feel Better About HImself
The cute boy on the left is Quaden (is that the coolest boy name you ever heard or what?) and he is a 5-year old Indigenous Australian boy from Brisbane, Australia who happens to have a common form of dwarfism. The sweet Shi Tzu on the right is called Buddy and he also has dwarfism.
This is a real tearjerker of a story, so be prepared.
According to Quaden’s mom Yarraka who talked to Mashable, her son had struggled for years with his condition, especially since he started going to school. He felt less than spectacular being smaller than anyone and he became quite shy.
Then, a vet friend of hers introduced Quaden to Buddy and the duo hit it right off. They became the best of friends and most importantly, the pup helped the boy see his dwarfism with new eyes. He started introducing Buddy as his friend with dwarfism, just like him.
There is no stopping these two dudes as they raise awareness of dwarfism with Stand Tall 4 Dwarfism.
