There are many individuals around the world who continue to be affected by unforeseen birth abnormalities. Some are shunned due to their differences, while others are embraced and valued for their uniqueness. These individuals often behave in ways that resemble animals. One example of this is Skipper, a dog born with six legs and two tails, who was unfortunately rejected by her mother.
Skipper, an Australian Collie mix, was born on February 16 with her eight siblings in Oklahoma. While her littermates were all healthy and normal, Skipper had a unique issue that set her apart. Her mother had abandoned her, and she required special care at Neel Veterinary Hospital to ensure her well-being.
The dog named Skipper is being hailed as a miracle due to her rare survival. Despite being born with congenital problems and genetic disorders that have never been seen in any other living dogs, Skipper has managed to live longer than any other. According to a Facebook post by the hospital, Skipper was the result of a surgery that was performed on a cat mother who had one egg in her womb that had the potential to divide into twins but only partially succeeded. Although Skipper has duplicate organs below the waist, they function normally, and she has been receiving proper medical attention that has helped her overcome her conditions. While some people are still concerned about her health, Skipper’s guardians have reassured everyone that she is a happy and healthy puppy, and the hospital has no intention of putting her down as there is no indication of any pain or discomfort. Although the future is unclear, the veterinarians expect Skipper to live a successful and contented life.
The hospital has set up a Facebook page where people can stay updated on Skipper’s progress. The page has accumulated over 55,000 followers. Be sure to share Skipper’s amazing journey with your friends and family!
