Meet Picasso, he was born with a very noticeable facial abnormality.

Because of the way his face looked, no one wanted him. After a while, the breeder eventually surrendered the completely healthy pup to the Porterville Animal Shelter in California, where he was quickly put on the euthanasia list.

Enter Luvable Dog Rescue, a rescue based in Oregon that often transports and takes in dogs from the Porterville shelter.

"I was talking to volunteer Shannon Corbit about the dogs we were receiving and just happened to ask her out of the blue if she had any unusual-looking or special needs dogs," Liesl Wilhardt, executive director of Luvable Dog Rescue, told The Dodo. "She responded, 'Well, as a matter of fact, I do!' and she sent me Picasso's shelter intake photo. He was curled in a dog bed, and looked very sad. His twisted face was startling, but he had soft and gentle eyes, and for me it was love at first sight!"

During a later conversation, she learned Picasso's brother, Pablo, was also at the shelter. She saved him too.

According to The Dodo, Luvable Dog Rescue has already received multiple adoption requests for the pair.

"We love them," Wilhardt said. "I wish we could keep them but they really are awesome dogs and deserve a home and family of their own."
