When Murray the Weimaraner was found as a puppy on a beach, some feared he might be too ugly to find love.

But the good natured dog – who has no teeth and an unusual bone structure – showed looks aren’t everything after finding his forever home.

Murray was found with two siblings on ‘Dead Dog Beach’ in Puerto Rico, which is a hotspot for abandoned pets.

Whilst in Puerto Rico, Murray and his siblings showed signs of distemper, a virus that is fatal to most dogs as it affects their respiratory and nervous symptoms.

Murray was due to be euthanised, however after a wag of his tail – the vet changed their mind and did what they could to treat him.

Due to the virus, Murray now has no teeth, causing his tongue to flop out of his mouth.

Murray, right, is now part of the family in the US

He also has bone deformation that makes him look a little different.

But this didn’t stop him from being adopted by Mackenzie Gallant and her family.

She said: “The signature tongue out is just the cutest thing, and his crooked features, if you look at his face closely you notice his ears aren’t aligned right on his head.

“His quirks make him even cuter and more special.”

The pooch is now happily living in Massachusetts with his human and canine family.

The popular pet has proved different can be beautiful

Murray’s human sister, Mackenzie, set up an Instagram account for the unusual pup to raise awareness of the condition and the importance of adoption.

She said: “We made his Instagram when I left for college for friends and family to follow but over the past year he has gained a lot of followers and helped raise awareness of rescue dogs, The Sato Project and distemper.”

The pup has gained quite the following, and proves that being different is also beautiful.

Mackenzie said: “Murray is so special because of his personality, he is a survivor and has no idea anything is wrong with him and is always happy and wagging his tail. He does and tries to do everything with his doggy siblings.

“We can’t imagine our lives without Murray and are grateful to The Sato Project, and all that they do for the unwanted dogs in Puerto Rico.”
