A New Jersey woman's post on a Facebook dog lover's page has gone viral. Tyfanee Fortuna recently posted on the Dogspotting Facebook group about her newest rescue pup and his unusual story.
Rumpelstiltskin. Fortuna explained in her post about the miraculous story of her new rescue pup, Rumpelstiltskin.
Crazy Legs. Fortuna explained her new pup usually gained recognition for his unusual stance. Rumpelstiltskin happened to have an unusually long set of legs that people found amusing.
Survival Situation. Outside of his unusual gait, Fortuna explained in her post that Rumpelstitskin had an equally unusual past. He had been found when it was discovered his previous owner had passed away.
Previous Owner. The New Jersey shelter volunteers had explained to Fortuna that her new pup would need some extra special attention. He had been left alone for two full weeks with no food or care before his owner was found dead in his home.
Survival Instincts. After going so long without food or water, Rumpelstiltskin had resorted to eating his previous owner's corpse in an effort to survive when his care ceased.
Tyfanee's Post. Tyfanee's post included his background story in an effort to gain attention for his extreme survival efforts. She commented, "He scares me but I love him."
Survivalist Pupper. Tyfanee explained in her post that she wanted recognition for her pup. "Bonus info: his owner was dead for a considerable time before anyone noticed and he did eat his human to stay alive. +1 for being a survivalist pupper," she wrote.
Tyfanee Fortuna. Fortuna's post has since gone viral and has collected mountains of comments and attention for the pup. Some were more excited than others but most seemed genuinely happy for the pup's survival and happily ever after story.
Odd Body. Fortuna explains most people fall in love with the pup for his unique body frame and lovable personality.
Weirdly Long Legs. Fortuna wrote, "His legs are weirdly long for his small body and also bowed out in a way that makes them look like a fancy table. He likes food, undivided attention, and sleeping for many hours at a time."
Rescue Pup. According to her social media page, Fortuna adopted Rumpelstiltskin about a year ago from a local animal shelter. She fell in love with him after seeing him quiver in the cages and hearing his story.
Four Pounds of Love. Fortuna clearly loves her little rescue pup despite his awful past. "He is four pounds of love and nervous shaking," she told group members.
Comments. The comment section was buzzing with people who were shocked and amazed at the little pup's story. One person wrote, "best story ever. Well, not for the owner, but what an epic doggo!"
Singing Praise. Many people commented and gave kudos to Fortuna for taking in a rescue dog. Others simply loved his story. Another commenter wrote, "Wow! I have so many thoughts right now! He is very cute. Very unique. I'm pleased he was found and now has a safe loving home."
