most unusual thing I have ever seen

Meet Quasimodo the German*Shepherd dog with a hunchback | Daily Mail Online


speechless
yet the dog is so friendly and appears to be a sound dog


I am going to forward this to a genetic specialist to see what he can find in the way of an explanation


dog deserves all the kindness in the world

Yes! Little Quasimodo! Isn't he a doll baby? I love that dog!

Chip posted on this a while back when he first came to rescue but the thread drew little interest.

dog is a sweetheart
see that it is from the UK
wonder if it is a genetic quirk from intensive inbreeding -- some sort of super extreme

A mixed breed with similar birth defects won the world's ugliest dog competition last year

The article is from a UK paper. The dog is actually in the US.

I remember that. There is also an Akita just like this too.

If I am not mistaken, he was found as a stray with a collar that was embedded in his neck.
