Casper the Siberian Husky was as born to a purebred dog breeder who intended to sell him for a profit. Unfortunately, he was born with “Swimmers Syndrome” which is an uncommon developmental deformity of newborn cats and dogs where their limbs are splayed laterally, making the dog or cat unable to stand or walk. Because the breeder didn’t know how to care for a dog like Casper and was unable to sell him, they decided to schedule him to be euthanized.

Luckily, compassionate citizens stepped in and refused to let Casper die. Gina, an Acuscope Biotechnician rescued Casper and immediately took him to a veterinarian for a complete check-up. Gina wasn’t sure if Casper would make it through the night, but when she woke up, she found a miracle. As seen in the above video, Casper started walking and moving, just like any other puppy. Within days, not only was Casper walking, but he was running and even climbing the stairs.

Casper’s breeder may have seen him as a lost profit, but Gina saw him for who he truly was: a loving, funny, affectionate dog who deserved a life full of happiness.

Each year in the U.S., six to eight million dogs and cats find themselves in animal shelters, with only about three million making it out alive.  Of the dogs, approximately 35 percent of them are purebreds, indicating that, although many purebred dogs are purchased as puppies, lots of them will still end up meeting the same sad fate as the rest.

For little more than the cost to drive to your closest shelter, you could go home with the puppy of your dreams and save a life. The bottom line is that when you buy, others die. So take a trip down to your local animal shelter and save a life today!

Thank you Gina for not giving up on Casper as his uncaring breeder did. You have saved a precious life and Casper is looking very happy and healthy.

While not wanting to trivialise the recovery of this puppy, Swimmer Syndrome is by no means rare or uncommon. It can occur with any very young pup (2 to 3 weeks of age), especially if the environment in which it is raised is slippery without any traction. If the breeder places the puppies on terry towelling or rough fabric (not newspapers or smooth flooring!), and gives the affected pups a bit of support for their hind legs and some physio, the condition can be rectified within a few days.

That breeder shouldn\'t be in business. He doesn\'t love his dogs; he\'s only in it for the money. This isn\'t the first time I\'ve seen dogs recover from Swimmers\' Syndrome. They can be helped with the proper care and exercise. I\'m so glad this beautiful dog was saved!
