Zappa, a toothless 15-year-old Italian greyhound that looks surprisingly like Sid the Sloth from the animated movie Ice Age, is redefining dog beauty. Owners Sadie and Rosalie Millen, of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, say that Zappa started sticking her tongue out a few years ago when she lost her teeth.
“Zappa’s quirks and unconventional beauty make her even more special to us,” said Sadie. “We hope to show how rewarding it can be to take care of a senior dog. Zappa brings so much joy to our lives.” Dental issues are common in greyhounds.
