Here is a heartwarming, emotional story about a deaf and visually impaired dog that will probably make you cry.
Plum is a 10-month-old Australian shepherd. Sadly, she was born with disabilities and taking care of her is not an easy task. Her owner, Aiden Michael Mann, had difficulties waking her up from her naps because she would always get scared. Even the slightest touch would make her jump. Nothing worked, not even snacks under her nose.
We asked Aiden when he got Plum and how he met her: “I got Plum July of 2019. She was 6 months old and just the sweetest pup. My coworkers work with a lot of rescues and were fostering her and her brother, and I was trying to find homes for them. When she brought Plum to work, I immediately loved her and wanted her.”
Aiden posted this special way of waking her up on TikTok and it went viral! The video has almost 13 million likes and was viewed almost 54 million times: “I had no idea it would get this many views. I was blown away when I went back and checked TikTok and saw her video going viral.”
The comments are filled with positivity and love. Some even said they would die for Plum and I have to agree.
