About Puddin

For a young pup named Puddin, tragedy and neglect turned into a Cinderella story thanks to an act of unbelievable kindness and care. Born in Texas, she developed a severe infection at just five months old, taking both of her eyes, leaving her completely blind. A few weeks later, a 22-year old student named Cory Gonzales saw her online and fell in love. After adopting Puddin, Cory decided to document her incredible growth and inspiring progress on Instagram. The rest, they say, is history, as this story of unmistakable love and care caught on with an audience, having since gone viral and accumulating over 100K followers on Instagram.
