Valentino is a puppy who is very lucky to be alive. Five months ago he was found out in a snowstorm. Not only was Valentino half frozen to death, he was also half of the weight that he should have been. A dog his age should have weighed thirty-five pounds. Valentino weighed thirteen.
The staff at the Animal Rescue League didn’t know if Valentino was going to survive through the rest of the day, much less whether or not he’d make it in the long term. He did live, though, and he eventually got to move in with his foster family, the Cliffords. Upon arriving in the new place, Valentino’s mood picked up like crazy, and he’s been happy go lucky ever since.
