Meet Quasimodo - A German Shepherd With A Short Spine And A Big Heart
January 30, 2016
A stray dog with a rare condition is looking for a loving home.
Quasimodo, a purebred German shepherd with short spine syndrome, is gaining fans online with his story.
The special pup was taken in by Secondhand Hounds, an animal shelter in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Sara Anderson, the large breed foster coordinator for the shelter, said she was contacted to take Quasi because of her love of special needs dogs.
"Born different but never knowing any other way, he seeks to please the people who have shown him kind hands and warm hearts," Anderson said.
Quasi is unable to turn his head, but otherwise his condition doesn't affect his day to day activities.
