Lentil the puppy undergoes surgery to correct cleft palate

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Lentil, the beloved French Bulldog from Fishtown with a rare medical condition, took a big step towards a normal life Tuesday.

Lentil underwent surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.

The 4-month-old pup was born with a primary and secondary cleft palate.

That makes eating very dangerous.

Lentil's foster mom, Lindsay, told his story on a Facebook page and people around the country donated money for today's surgery.

Action News is told Lentil is now awake and recovering.
