Here's a doggy that folks can’t help but compare to Baby Yoda. and that we can definitely see the resemblance. Mork is so popular, he already has 118K followers on Instagram, but his story is even more amazing!

Mork was rescued from the meat trade China by a corporation called Harbin SHS . He was so weak he had to be hospitalized immediately, and nearly died. Thankfully, he pulled through. and when he was healthy enough, Mork was delivered to the USA by Road Dogs & Rescue - .and adopted by the founder - Nikki Carvey.

Sadly, some people still think it's cool to eat dogs there, and lots of unwanted dogs are sold to the meat trade,'.


Carvey praised the ladies who run Harbin SHS and therefore the thousands of lives they save. They specialise in getting the dogs healthy, then partner with various rescues to urge them homes within the US. Road Dogs is one among those rescues. 'So far we've found loving homes for over 50 dogs. Including Mork! As soon as I his photo, I knew that he was meant to return to me.'

Still, it has been an extended and arduous process for Mork since he was first rescued in October last year. He suffers from Irritable Bowel Disorder (IBD) and was very underweight when he arrived from China - weighing only 12.4 lbs. He also features a bunch of congenital issues due to bad breeding - eg heart, breathing, jaw malformation. But Carvey is optimistic.

Mork also can help raise awareness about the meat trade and adoption. the foremost amazing dogs are often found in shelters and rescues. ".

Some have urged Carvey to run a DNA test to seek out out what breed Mork is. However, she refuses. Her concern is that folks might attempt to breed a dog just to undertake and appearance like him, with no reference to all the health issues that accompany it.

So, what's next for Mork? Well, first he must get fully healthy. then , Carvey wants to coach him as a therapy dog to go to nursing homes and hospitals, where she hopes he can bring joy and help people heal. She smiled last . ''His mission is to share love and wonder!"
