The Heartbreaking Tale of a Pup Struggling with a Rare Leg Condition and Unable to Walk Properly

Meet Mia, an adorable puppy with a one-of-a-kind birth defect. This lovable little ball of fur came into the world with an extra leg and an extra tail, making her a truly special pup. Due to her previous owners’ inability to give her the proper care and attention she needed, they made the difficult decision to give her up.

Mia has an additional pair of paws and tails located near her belly. In addition, she has a few genetic conditions, such as having two vaginas and two anuses, which means she uses both for waste elimination.

The shelter is seeking donations to support a surgery for a specific patient. They need more precise x-rays and ultrasounds before moving forward with the required medical procedures to decide on the best course of treatment.

Mia is the sole pup in her litter who has fallen ill, while her brothers and sisters have all been taken in by caring families.

During 2021, a little pup named Skipper underwent medical care at Neel Veterinary Hospital. The vet suggested that Skipper might have once been a twin but the separation didn’t quite finish, leading to Skipper being born with six legs, two tails, two pelvic regions, and two reproductive systems.

It is believed that Mia was born with the same birth defect. She is set to have two surgeries within the next week, starting with the first one tomorrow. Mia has been under the regular care of veterinarians for her condition.

The latest news about the puppy’s health is looking positive, and we are optimistic that she will enjoy a long and happy life. But for now, caring for her remains a difficult and expensive task.
