Walter was a baby when Kelly and Brad Blake took him into their home in Oatman, Arizona. “We have wild burros that roam the town,” Brad Blake told The Dodo. “Walter’s mama rejected him because she was too young. The Bureau of Land Management and town locals tried for 10 hours to get Walter’s mama to take to him. Nothing was working, so we were called and asked if we would like to adopt him. Of course, we said yes!”
It didn’t take long for Walter to adjust to his new normal. The moment they showed him affection, Walter connected to his new parents on a deeper level — especially his dad.
