This Cute Dog Might Look Unusual, But She's Got An Important Message To Spread

Jessica is a writer who lives in Queens, NY. She spends most of her time listening to One Direction, watching TV, and hanging out with her one-eyed cat, Rigby.

You might think she looks a little odd at first, but this gorgeous girl is too sweet to deny her your love.

Found on the side of a road in Bellflower, California, Daisy spent two months in a shelter. Just before she was scheduled to be put down, a volunteer from A Home 4Ever Rescue swept in and fostered her for several months before finding her a loving forever home with now-owner Sheena.

As well as the obvious (and adorable) underbite, Daisy's elbows, right shoulder, and back hips are dislocated.

She was born with the condition and even though she has built enough strength to not rely on her wheels, vets advised Sheena that it would be better in the long run to let her use them to keep stress off her spine.

Still, she doesn't spend all of her time in the chair, only using it when they go on long walks.

Sheena describes the pup as "a girl with a lot of energy and spunk" and a constant source of inspiration.

Together, they channel that inspiration into advocating for adoption over purchasing pets.

The one-of-a-kind cutie is the adorable face of Underbite Unite.

Through the project, Daisy helps spread a loving message about animals everywhere with special needs just like her.

With all she went through to finally find her home, she is the perfect example for how a little love can make huge a difference.

Sheena told Distractify, "I never looked at Daisy's disability as a hindrance...I see her as a strong girl and feel the same way about all disabled dogs."

And she definitely doesn't mind the attention her pooch attracts when they go for walks. Sheena sees it as yet another opportunity to spread their message for adoption and disabled dogs.

Sheena does whatever it takes to make sure Daisy is living her happiest, healthiest life possible — which means getting a bit imaginative with things like knitting extra padding for the chest piece of her wheels and using a stuffed animal to help the pup's posture while she eats.

You can follow all of Daisy's adorable adventures and help spread her amazing message on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. You can also help her earn enough money for a new pair of prosthetic legs by buying one of the super-cute items in her shop. You know you want to rock this cutie's face on your sleeve!
