Pig is a mixed breed female dog who was born with a birth defect called "short spine syndrome". She appears to not have a neck and the length of her body is about 7 inches shorter than normal, giving her the appearance of a pig! This has not stopped her from running and playing just like a normal dog and she is full of love. You will hear about this dogs amazing story and how she is bringing comfort and hope to many and changing our view of dogs born with birth defects. Pig is not "defective" but unique!
