20 Sep 2016 | by Deepshikha Tahiliani | Posted in: Wag News

Bonsai, a bulldog who was born with half body recently took his last breath. His fans and owners were devastated with the news. Bonsai was merely 16 months old. Bonsai was rescued by Elizabeth Hart. She posted an emotional message on Facebook, saying “We've always been aware that Bonsai may not live a long life due to his rare combined conditions — he hadn't been sick, there was no warning, and we are still shocked at the sudden happenings.”

This bulldog was born with rare deformities which include no pelvis, half a spine, little, immobile hind legs, which were amputated later as it caused him pain. Hart mentioned in her Facebook post that Bonsai had a good life and wasn’t ill before he passed away. She added by saying, “I tucked him into his little bed as I do every night. A few hours later, I heard what sounded like a faint cough, little bark, and then nothing. His heart had stopped, just that quickly.”

Bonsai was born in April 2015 to an Arkansas breeder. Due to his deformities, he was given to Texas Rescue Organization, Friends of Emma, founded by Elizabeth Hart herself. At that time, the furball was merely 3 and a half weeks old. Hart also informed in a previous interview that Bonsai had Caudal Regression, which was supposed to be found in only in humans until it was diagnosed in Bonsai. For this reason, Bonsai was made the official mascot of iSACRA, International Sacral Agenesis/Caudal Regression Association. There is no doubt that this cute little bulldog inspired all of us. His huge fan following is a proof of the same. He maintained his social media presence with the name, “Half a Bulldog, Twice the Love.”

May Bonsai’s soul rest in peace.
