This is what happened to the dog Murray considered “ugly”. From birth he had to fight to survive and overcome all adversities.
Murray and his brothers were found on a beach in Puerto Rico known as “Dead Dog Beach”, which is considered a hotspot for abandoned pets.
Murray and his siblings were rescued by The Sato Project , a canine charity dedicated to saving mistreated dogs left to fend for themselves on that beach.
After their rescue, Murray and his siblings developed symptoms of distemper, a virus that is fatal to most dogs because it affects the respiratory and nervous systems. Unfortunately, his brothers did not survive.

Murray’s human sister created an Instagram account where they post photos of this unusual pup to raise awareness about his condition and the importance of adoption.

Mackenzie said that Murray is so special because of his personality, he is a survivor who never stops wagging his tail because he is always happy.
