Despite all that we know about the dangers of breeding dogs to “create” rare or trendy animals, people continue to do so for a profit. Although people pay thousands of dollars for dogs that have a certain eye color or are small enough to put in their purse, they are unaware of the serious health implications that come with selectively breeding animals to look a certain way. More often than not, dogs who have been produced in this way suffer from extreme health issues, but as long as the breeders get paid, they aren’t concerned.

Pegasus, the white Great Dane is sadly an example of this.

Born into a reckless breeding operation, Pegasus was the only one of her siblings to survive puppyhood. The gene that causes Pegasus to be white can also lead to deafness and blindness, but none of this mattered to Dave Meinert, the kind man who rescued her.

Meinert was warned that Pegasus wouldn’t live very long due to the health issues she would likely encounter in life. So, he did what any loving guardian/filmmaker would do and set out to document his beloved pup’s life.

Months later, Pegasus is healthy and happy. Although Meinert doesn’t know how long his best friend will live, he cherishes every second he gets to spend with her in the meantime.

TRUSTED LENDER ([email protected])
My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan. You are to contact this GODSENT LENDER via Email: [email protected] OR Text +18168926958

WOW!!!
This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it\'s been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn\'t give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man\'s wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I\'m physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can\'t get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: [email protected] or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

Now that Pegasus has that loving home with Dave Meinert, the power of love can really do great things.
Many of us know stories of cats, dogs, horses, etc, that weren\'t supposed to live long, and fooled everybody.
Fingers crossed that Pegasus is one of those stories <3 Every day with her is wonderful.

in 2007 I took in 2 brother pups, 4 weeks old, who I named Henry and Murphy. They had been tossed into the desert to die because, due to shitty breeding, they were deaf and had sight problems. Henry, the smaller and more seriously sight impacted, began having seizures at 6 weeks of age and despite all medical intervention passed away at 2.5 years of age. Murphy lived for almost ten years. He aged more quickly and around 7 years of age slowly went totally blind.
While this might sound like a sad story, it isn\'t...the truth is that so-called "handicapped" or special needs dogs can live full happy lives, even if deaf and blind.
I love what Meinert is doing with and for Pegasus. Given that the baby has lived this long, he very well may have a very long and full life. There are "lethal white" (ie deaf/blind dogs due to breeding for "white" coloration) organizations and they may be able to help with training deaf/blind animals should that happen.
I found training by touch (I sued hand signals while Murphy could see plus touch) works wonderfully.
I wish you both all the best. You are a providing a wonderful, loving home for Pegasus.

My name is Mary Silva, I just split up with my boyfriend of 7 years. We were great together, completely in love and talked about marriage and growing old together, we traveled the world together, everyone knows us as a perfect couple, we never fought always laughed together… however the last 2 years have been very difficult. We have been living together for over 5 years but the last 2 years have been a stressful living situation as I had to take in a friend that was in need. I also started my own business which kept me extremely busy. I am completely devastated, hurt, lost and just want him back. I love him completely. We had a few discussions before he left about trying to work things out, and he felt I took him for granted…I had stopped treating him with appreciation and love. I agreed that I have to be more romantic and be an equal partner in the relationship. Over the course of the following days I showed him love and appreciation, treated him like I had done in the past however he still wanted out. he said he needed time and space to figure out what he wants. I told him I would not give up on us but I would give him space that he wanted. he said he still loved me and care a lot about me but was just hurting.i was totally down because i need my man back one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in two days after his spell my man who told me he needed space, call me and come back home to me i must say today we are happily married not only married but have two lovely kids all thanks to Dr happy a father and a real spell caster.

What a fantastic video idea and story. Pegasus learning from a pup to master the treadmill, and at the same time...maturing and growing stronger each day. Awesome to watch.

Great Dane\'s are marvelous characters, and like all dogs to their owners... loving and loyal.

I hope he/she lives to a ripe ole age. Thank you so much for taking the time to produce this video, then SHARING with the public..
