Some things are just meant to be. Take Jordan Trent and his new puppy.
The husband and father-god of two was investing the recent holidays in Sulphur Bluff, Texas, with all 22 each member of his family when he and one of his sisters decided to visit a flea market.
That’s where Jordan spotted a mini Australian shepherd puppy that was born with just one eye.
“He was the last of his offspring, ” Jordan’s sister, Kendra Trent told The Huffington Post. “The guy told him no one required the dog.”
But Jordan did.
When Jordan was in middle school, he was weed-whacking a neighbor’s yard when a piece of metal from the blade is entered into his eyes. Despite innumerable surgeries, he lost his eyesight in his left eye.
The puppy at world markets was missing his left eye.
Jordan knew “hes to” take the minuscule furball residence, and when he did, the Trent family instant fell in love with him. Later Kendra snapped a picture of Jordan and the pooch and posted it on her Reddit detail. That persona moved viral — receiving close to 2,000 observations on the content sharing website alone — and proving that the Internet cherishes the duo just as much as the Trent family does.
The family decided to name the puppy Shiner Solo. But the mean behind the reputation isn’t because the dog has just one black eye. “Shiner” is a nod to the family’s favorite Texas beer, and Solo is short for Hans Solo — Jordan’s son’s favorite “Star Wars” character.
Jordan and Shiner are two of a kind — in more spaces than what matches the eye. Both have personalities as warm and fuzzy as Shiner’s fluffy coat.
“Jordan is the one that ever preserves us giggling, ” Kendra announced. “He is also very caring and sugared. He always represents day for his children and induces them detect special. He’s too a really great husband and does elaborated happenings for his wife.”
“He’s super sweetened, ” added Kendra. “He rebounds instead of walks.”
And what Shiner is missing in his batch, he makes up for with his intelligence.
“Shiner is really smart, ” lends Kendra. “I think he’s already potty studied, and they are only fetched him home last-place Saturday.”
