​This rescued puppy timelapse video will get you right in the feels
Dave Meinert is a director and filmmaker based in Cape Town, South Africa. He met his loyal companion, an adorable pitbull-like dog named Pegasus, in under the worst possible circumstances, but has since turned their story around into a happy one.

“I rescued Pegasus from backyard breeders when she was a puppy,” he wrote in an entry on Bored Panda. "Most of her siblings died at birth or were deformed. She is a “double-merle” and was born with a severe lack of pigment. Most double-merles are born blind and/or deaf and I was told that if she lived, this might happen to her, too.”

“Rather than focus on the negative, I wanted a way to document her good days of good health and celebrate them,” he continued. “I set about taking a picture of her growing up every day not knowing how long it would last. The result is a pretty amazing time-lapse that spanned half a year as she grew from a week 4 week old puppy to a 7 month old teenager. She’ll always be plagued with health issues but she’s happy and has the most loving disposition.”

The resulting clip is too cute for words. Check it:
