Poor pooch



http://edition.cnn.com/videos/us/2016/02/02/quasimodo-german-shepherd-short-spine-syndrome-natpkg.cnn




A stunted dog with a rare condition is looking for a home.

Quasimodo, a purebred German shepherd with short spine syndrome, is gaining fans online with his story.

On Monday, Secondhand Hounds updated Quasi's 50,000 fans on Facebook on the pup's health and medical treatments.

Quasi had his neck clipped and cleaned to help the skin heal from his collar wound and he was neutered. He will be seeing a specialist to fix what is called a screw tail, a vertebrae deformity in the tail.

"Quasi is missing a couple of vertebra in his back, but that is not causing him pain. His back cannot be surgically repaired," the shelter wrote on Facebook.

Quasi was also seen by a human geneticist at University of California, who is studying his blood to find out what causes short spine syndrome.

Hopefully he finds a deserving home.

I would have named him......



"SHORT BUS."



/edit


Is it easier or harder for the dog to lick his balls? I am guessing harder?


/edit


Would a Weiner Dog with this condition simply look normal?

A....




Kurz-9

Say it as Kurznine.


Or call him "k" or "9" short for "k9"


Form a punk band... have Nines be the mascot... make a song called "9in Spine". Inspired by the song "Nubs" by NOFX...

Literally a head and ass...

Ignore the McD's on the right. The guy on the left, like the dogs, has no neck.

Instead of a Chihuahua, how about a Dachshund?

I follow his page as it fascinates me. He seems to be a really happy dog and I hope someone gets him and gives him a good home.

I can't laugh at this enough. I need a video of him playing with the dog that only has hind legs.
