Disabled dog discovers beach for the first time and can’t contain her excitement
The adorable moment a disabled golden retriever discovered a beach for the very first time has melted the hearts of the internet.
Hope was born with neurological condition cerebellar hypoplasia, meaning part of her brain is smaller than usual and not completely developed.
It leads to her having jerky movements and uncoordinated motion when she tries to walk.
But her condition does not stop her living life to the full, as shown by her first ever trip to the beach.
In the tear-jerking footage posted by Facebook page Golden Hope, the pooch wiggles ferociously in excitement as she charges across the sand in Eastpoint, Florida, US.
At one point, the sheer joy appears too much as she takes a short tumble before jumping back up again and heading towards the sea.
A giggle erupts from behind the camera as Hope continues to have a whale of a time.
The video was posted on January 5 with the caption: “Who says that dogs with Cerebellar Hypoplasia can’t live a fun filled life. Hope having her first beach time and loving it.”
It has since been re-shared on Reddit and has quickly gone viral, receiving more than 3,000 up votes.
The comments section was filled with viewers saying how adorable the sight was.
“It hurts to know he has an incurable disorder but just seeing that smiling face on him makes me smile,” one wrote.
Another commented: “Legend has it that dogs still dancing.”
A third wrote: “I'm sorry I…uh…don't know what to do with my paws.”
While a fourth said: “I’m not crying, you are crying.”
Hope isn’t the only pooch who has brought a smile to viewers despite her neurological illness.
Daily Star previously revealed how Sarah, an Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix, gets overly excited when she is fed.
