In this world, many people are still born with unexpected birth defects. Some are welcomed and loved, while others are despised because of their differences. Animals are the same way. Skipper is an example of such a situation, according to pawsplanet.
Her mother rejected the special puppy with six legs and two tails.

The Aussie-Collie cross was born naturally on February 16 in Oklahoma, along with eight siblings. While her brothers and sisters were all perfectly healthy and normal, Skipper’s situation was a little different. Her mother had also abandoned her, so the tiny kitten was taken to Neel Veterinary Hospital for better medical care. People believe Skipper is the first of her kind to survive, and they refer to her as a “miracle.”
“This is Skipper, a miracle.” Literally. She has survived longer than we suspect any other canine has (at only 4 days old – published research does not indicate one was born alive) with her combination of congenital conditions,” the hospital announced on Facebook page.
So, what had happened to cause Skipper to be so strange and unusual? According to the hospital’s veterinarians, it appeared that an egg in the cat mother’s womb was likely to split into twins but did not completely succeed, and the rare dog was the result of that process.
Skipper has overcome her situation and is still alive thanks to her own determination and timely medical treatment. The child also has duplicate organs from her waist down, but they are still functional.
Skipper is now surrounded by love, and many people are praying for her. Some people are still concerned about Skipper’s health, but her caregivers have confirmed that she “is a happy and healthy puppy.” She isn’t in any pain and isn’t expected to be.” So, obviously, we have nothing to be concerned about, at least for the time being.
Neel Veterinary Hospital announced on Facebook that they “do not plan on putting her down because there is no indication she is in pain or will be.” The vets expect Skipper to live a full and happy life, and they have no idea what the future holds, so they are “expecting a journey.”
The hospital also set up a Facebook page for people to follow Skipper’s progress, which has over 55 thousand followers so far. Please share Skipper’s wonderful story with your friends and family!
