    Life's looking merrier for an earless terrier

    His bright eyes and mischievous antics would melt the hardest of hearts.

    But this puppy found himself abandoned because he suffered the misfortune of being born with no ears.

    Experts say they have never seen anything like Weasel the border terrier cross - and hope he can find a new home where his disability won't be an issue.

    And, despite appearances, it seems the 10-month-old puppy can actually hear, for he is believed to have working inner ears covered by skin.

    Vets hope they will be able to let the tiny dog hear properly for the first time by making tiny openings where his outer ears should be.

    How cute is Weasel!!!!!

    I do wonder though if opening up the ears would lead to a whole new set of problems though!!
