‘Half-dog’ Pig Finds Loving Home
Pig is an unusual dog with an amazing story.
She was found in the woods near Atlanta. The veterinarian who looked her over at first recommended putting the monstrous puppy down. She was born with severe birth defects; she’s missing part of her spine and several ribs. Parts of her hips and joints also face the wrong directions. This deformation is common enough to have a name: baboon dog syndrome.

Kim Dillenbeck had rescued animals before, but never a dog like Pig. Without her adoptive mother’s help, she wouldn’t have been able to survive.
