Owner Runs With Disabled Dog in His Arms, Just So It Can Enjoy Running with the Pack

Canelo, a pit bull suffering from a debilitating medical condition that forbids him from moving normally, may just have the best dad in the world.

The heartwarming story of Canelo and his owner was shared on TikTok by the man’s daughter, Jooseline. She posted a touching video explaining that her pet dog was suffering from canine hypertrophic osteodystrophy, a condition that drastically restricts his mobility, making it painful for him to run with the family’s three other pit bulls. Sadly, hanging out with his brothers and running through the fields was his favorite pastime, so in order to let Canelo enjoy the experience despite his condition, Jooseline’s dad routinely picks him up and runs with him in his arms alongside the other dogs.

Although it’s not a perfect solution, the thought that someone would go through all this trouble just to make their sick dog happy touched a lot of hearts, and the video posted by Jooseline on TikTok a couple of months ago got hundreds of thousands of views and over 1,000 comments from animal lovers.

“He can’t exert much effort because it hurts,” Jooseline captioned the short but touching clip. “My dad lets him enjoy the time as much as the others.”

Canelo isn’t the smallest dog in the world, and his dad can be seen struggling to carry him, but he still has a smile on his face while he’s doing it, so you can tell he really loves his pet.

Jooseline recently posted another short clip of Canelo riding in a baby stroller, and he seems to be enjoying himself. I guess the family is testing out ways to help him enjoy walks, without the actual walking.
