Delta was born into this world missing some toes on his right side, both front and back. To make it more interesting, he even had a cleft palate.
In the beginning, this caused a couple of challenges. With the surgeries he underwent to correct this, Delta never looked back, though he kept that cute little lip smile.
With the difference in his paws, he never lets it bother him. One would never know it when he is running around the yard chasing after his favorite toys.
It was barely even noticeable when he would be walking and sniffing around the yard, or jumping up on the sofa to secure his window view to observe all the activities outside his home. Another fun fact is, Delta might have been the runt of his litter, but he rules the roost and he outgrew his dad.
Delta also enjoys being a huge snuggle monster, while being a fearless protector. Belgian Malinois are not for everyone, and he is no exception. With guidance over the years, he grew into an awesome pup.Whizzco
