Abandoned Dog With Twisted-Up Face Named Picasso Finally Finds His Forever Home

A forever home has finally been found for this wonky-faced dog who is fittingly named Picasso.


Picasso is a pit bull, Chihuahua, and Pomeranian mix who was born with "wry mouth" - an upper jaw deformity.

His unconventional look gave him the name Picasso because he looks like one of the artist's famous abstract portraits.

Picasso's condition has disfigured his face with his nose pushed to the right and his overbite pushed to the left - but he can still eat, bark, and play like any other pooch.

He was abandoned two days before Christmas 2016 with brother Pablo - who did not suffer from the defect - and taken in by dog shelter owner Liesl Wilhardt, 51, a few months later.

Despite only intending to foster the two pups for a few months, Pablo died suddenly of a brain aneurysm in October 2017.

Devastated by the loss of his brother, Picasso, 3, now lives with eight other rescue dogs, two cats and a rescue pig named Pax.

Owner Liesl Wilhardt who runs Luvable Dog Rescue in Oregon said:

"People feel sorry for him at first because they think he was hurt. But he was born that way. He is perfectly imperfect."
"Once they know he isn't in any pain and nothing horrible happened to him, they relax and his appearance makes them laugh."

"He was actually almost killed as a puppy because he ate some plastic and it caused a blockage in his system."
"Nobody knows why some animals are born with this condition. Something just happens when they are developing in the womb."

@picassothewonkyandwacku /SWNS.COM

"He is not in any pain, and does not need corrective surgery. He can still do all the things other dogs can do. "
"He can do everything a normal dog does, but he is a bit of a messy eater. But he can only lick to his left."

@picassothewonkyandwacku /SWNS.COM

"He knows tricks and commands. He can play dead, wave, walk backwards in circles, jump through hoops. You know it, he can do it."
"He often does it with Pax the pig too. I fell in love with his face right away. We are the best of friends."

@picassothewonkyandwacku /SWNS.C

"His jaw line is fine and he can open his mouth normally as you can see with his amazing yawns."

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.
