Foundation Teaches Dog With Birth Defect To Walk

Posted: Updated:

Mick is a dog born with a disease called swimmer puppy where all his legs are spread out flat. He couldn't walk, stand, nothing.

Most dogs born with this disability are immediately euthenized. But an organization called The Mia Foundation took him in. The Mia Foundation serves to give animals born with birth defects a second chance.

Through intensive therapy that included swimming, hanging by a harness, and taping his legs into the correct position. Mick, in less than two weeks, built the muscle and the skill to walk and even run. He still receives therapy, but his progress has amazed everyone at the foundation.

The video asks that you share Mick's story so other dogs with this condition will be given a chance to live. The Mia Foundation was named after a Chihuahua named Mia who was born with a cleft palate and given a second chance.

Mick will be on Fox Fursday on Good Day this week. Tune in then!
