This dog is adorable.
Pig, an 8-month-old pup, was born with severe deformities, but that’s not slowing her down. The Mixed Breed runs and plays like and other dog, despite having legs for days and a body that appears to have no middle, misshapen hips and no neck.
"She’s missing several inches, probably seven inches of spine, her joints, her hips and her joints, and everything, are way up here at the top, right at the base of what is her spine, and none of them are in the right position,” owner Kim Dillenbeck tells the Associated Press.
"The whole clinic loves her. She comes in and she’s a rock star here,” says Dr. Rachael Hudson-Breland, a veterinarian who treats Pig.
The dog named pig, hops like a frog and looks a bit like a gorilla when sitting, but she looks perfect to us.
Pig was found as a puppy with three brothers and sisters before being adopted. The smallest of the three, she weighs only 15 pounds although she is clearly a larger breed dog. Veterinarian’s say she is in great "shape” despite her unusual shape.
"When she was really, really little she looked like a little fuzzy piglet,” says Dillenbeck, in a report by the Trentonian.
"I don’t think Pig really knows that she looks different. She runs around, she plays. The only thing with Pig is…she has respiratory issues so when she’s running around she gets a little more tired than most dogs,” Dr. Hudson-Breland tells AP.
Pig who lives with her mom in Helena, Alabama draws quite the crowd of curious and delighted onlookers. She is also drawing a crowd on her Facebook page, where you can follow her for more photos.
