When Magni was found, he was so young that he still had his umbilical cord attached to his tiny body. A cruel human had removed him from his mother and tossed him out into the cold. This left him with slim odds of survival. 

But that didn’t stop his new mom Vanessa from falling in love with him and doing everything she could to keep him alive.

Magni puppy

While she was scrolling Facebook, Vanessa first laid eyes on Magni’s beautiful face. A post made by a rescue explained that almost immediately after he was born, the tiny pup had been taken away from his mom and cast aside by a human. 

It was so soon after birth that his umbilical cord was still attached to him.

As you can imagine, he was incredibly weak when he was found. He was in such rough shape that the odds were slim that he would even survive. But that warning didn’t matter to Vanessa. She knew right after reading the post that she was the one who needed to swoop in and see if she could save him. 

Feeding Bottle

At first, she struggled to get him to take a bottle. It took everything she had to keep it together and do her best not to think the worst. We all know what it means when a puppy stops eating. 

But then, suddenly, he finally started taking the bottle. Vanessa fed him every two hours and had many sleepless nights, but Magni was gaining weight, which was most important to her.

“I’m just so grateful that we found each other in this lifetime,” she said.

Magni Now

Now, Magni is four-months-old and living his best life. He’s absolutely thriving and doing amazingly well with his training. His life started out scary and sad, but now he knows true love. 

He’s such a snuggle bug and absolutely insists on having a minimum of his head on his mom at all times. He has no concept of his actual size and loves to squeeze his large body into her comfy lap. 

“It’s easy to know love when he is with me,” Vanessa said.

While they have no idea what breed the playful pup may be, their best guess is that he might be a mix between a Cane Corso and a Pointer. But in the end, it doesn’t matter. He’s 100 percent adorable and adored!
