There is a lot bad news our screens, but a heart-warming story comes a vet in the USA. A puppy born severe abnormalities has survived. Doctors are optimistic that she will live a healthy life. Skipper the puppy is a cross-breed. She was one nine puppies. While her siblings were "normal," Skipper was born six legs and two tails. These are her most visible abnormalities. She has others, two pelvises, two lower urinary tracts and two reproductive regions. Her vet said that despite Skipper's condition, her organs are working "just fine".
Vets called Skipper's survival a "miracle". They wrote their hospital Facebook page that: "She has survived longer than we suspect any other canine has.... her combination congenital conditions." They added: "Skipper...is able to scoot just a regular puppy." They said: "We think that she may have some things to overcome, but she is determined right now and thriving." Skipper has her own Facebook page. It says she is the correct weight her age and "accomplishing all her milestones...She is following a path to a happy and healthy life".
