Unusual Pig-Like Dog Becomes an Internet Sensation
Pig is different, it's plain to see. When she goes out, people stop and stare at the dog with no neck and short body. Now the small dog is becoming a big star, thanks to the Internet.
Pig was born in a wooded area in Atlanta. Her littermates looked ordinary, but the disfigured pup looked like a fuzzy piglet, which made her easy to name. Her unusual appearance didn't deter Kim Dillenbeck of Alabama from adopting the one-of-a-kind dog, however.
Dillenbeck had Pig evaluated. Her short, wavy spine is missing about 7" and fused in the neck area. So while Pig is a real head-turner, she is unable to turn hers. Her veterinarian, Dr. Rachael Hudson-Breland, says, "The whole clinic loves her. She comes in and she's a rock star here."
Now Pig is becoming a rock star online with her own Facebook page that now has over 4,000 likes. Her Youtube videos demonstrate her unusual movements and happy-go-lucky personality.
Pig doesn't seem to know she's different from other dogs. She's fairly healthy considering her deformities. She does have respiratory difficulties and tires more easily than other dogs, but Pig is is a happy girl.
She's also cute and an inspiration!
