Somjai Phummaman and his wife Amphan noticed that their family dog was giving birth. As the two tiny pups were born, Somjai carefully put them in a basket.
It was then that he noticed something was very different about one of the pups. He had large lips and only one eye in the middle of its head.
When neighbours heard about the unusual pup they were keen to visit, believing the pup’s uniqueness was a sign of good luck. While looking at him, one neighbour remarked that the puppy resembled Kevin the Minion.
Kevin the puppy
Somjaj decided this was the perfect name for his special little puppy. But while Kevin is settling into his home with Somjaj, it’s not yet known whether his one eye will work properly. It can take at least two months for a pup’s eyesight to fully develop.
But while Somjaj and his family are bottle-feeding Kevin as he can’t feed from his mother, they aren’t quite sure what the future holds for the adorable little canine.
Kevin’s very rare condition, cyclopia, often affects the brain too. The vet who examined Kevin said that there’s a chance he will only have a short life expectancy. But his family are just hoping that their love and care will help Kevin to live a long and happy life.
