Salty the Greyhound’s bite is so pronounced that their teeth look human-like. While many visitors to the shelter found her teeth ugly and grotesque, a family in Melbourne ended up falling in love with her and adopting her!
Mom Lucy Percival spends every day indulging in salty and discovering a new side of her personality. But one day, Salty began chattering uncontrollably, much to her parents’ concern. The dog’s chatter grew louder as Lucy snuggled up to Salty wondering what was going on.
Eventually, the family realized, Salty wasn’t sick, scared, or cold, but the root of her uncharacteristic chattering teeth was love! Salty has never experienced so much love and comfort in her life, and her heart explodes every time her family makes her happy. The overwhelming feeling made her teeth chatter!
Because of Salty’s frequent joyful teeth chattering, the Percivals have grown accustomed to a noisy household over the years. Many people misunderstand Salty’s condition and inquire about his well-being, which the family must explain is an involuntary response similar to a cat’s purr!
Lucy considers Salty to be the best gift she’s ever received, and she credits her “social” dog with helping her form lifelong friendships in her neighborhood. No matter how they appear, rescue dogs are always a blessing!
