The Runt Of The Litter Determined To Survive

Dachshund runt of the litter

Most breeders know that there’s a chance that a litter will have a runt. In fact, it happens more often than you might think and this video is the story of one of those little ones born with big problems.

However, as most dog owners come to realize later, you should never give up on any of the pups in the litter regardless of the disabilities that they may have. Little Girl, the tiny baby in this video, had problems when she was born and, by a miracle, she managed to overcome everything.

She is so adorable being only half the size of her sisters and brother, you would never believe they are from the same litter.

Here’s a great story that just helps prove my point and it's beautifully narrated by a lady who is madly in love with this brave little runt of the litter.

The cutie who stars in the video on the next page was named Heidi by her mom. Heidi was born with all sorts of problems but she beat the odds. She's a hero.

  1. My boy Lloyd was the runt of the litter. He was born with an overview which made eating difficult, his litter was fed from a communal bowl which meant he was getting less food than the others.
    When we adopted him, he was tiny, malnourished and timid.

    He’s the best dog I’ve ever had, loves cuddles and is my best bud.

  2. My little runt of the litter was sold to me for $100, with the promise to return the money because they did not expect him to live. He lived 18 1/2 years, longer than any of his litter mates. Still miss him very much.
