An emotional 30-second TikTok posted by @rockyivanov shows clips from 2022 of a German Shepherd puppy that was paralyzed in his back legs. The clips follow the pup’s journey and it is amazing to see him grow stronger and stronger!

Rocky has straight leg syndrome (SLS)which makes it hard for him to walk and he needs a lot of extra care and attention. However, Rocky doesn’t let that stop him from enjoying life. His condition makes his back legs stiff and makes it very hard for him to move.
Although the pup has had many struggles so far in his short life, he doesn’t let it stop him from exploring and getting around! In another video, they said that Rocky has something the doctors call “straight leg syndrome.” However, his parents call it “cute leg syndrome.”
