GENTLE GIANT RESCUE PUP IS SPITTING IMAGE OF THE GRUFFALO
October 15, 2018
Dogue de Bordeaux Maddie’s bottom jaw juts out meaning her pointy canines are permanently on show just like the tusks of the famed children’s book character.
While her protruding pearly whites might make her look like the fictional beast, there is nothing monstrous about two-year-old Maddie – other than the fact she is a ‘slobber monster’.
In fact the four-stone fur baby, who is on the lookout for her forever home, couldn’t be more chilled out or have more love to give, according to her 34-year-old foster mum Dawn Hughes.
Dawn, of Birkenhead, Merseyside, said: “As soon as I heard there was a Dogue de Bordeaux that needed fostering I offered to take her in because they are such a lovely breed.
“And Maddie turned up with her teeth hanging out. Her underbite is so cute, it just makes me laugh so much.
“She looks exactly like the Gruffalo from the children’s books with these two big teeth poking out all the time. She’s so funny.
“It’s a good job her teeth are always nice and clean with them permanently on show.”
