A Puppy with Six Legs

Neel Veterinary Hospital in Oklahoma City shows us a four-day-old puppy that has six legs! The veterinarians cannot find any record of such a case where a puppy has survived birth, but the female puppy, named Miracle and called Skipper, seems to be relatively healthy.   

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

She has a type of congenital conjoining disorders called monocephalus dipygus and monocephalus rachipagus dibrachius tetrapus which simply means she has 1 head and chest cavity but 2 pelvic regions, 2 lower urinary tracts, 2 reproductive systems, 2 tails and 6 legs among other things.

Skipper now has her own Facebook feed so you can find out more, keep up with her progress, and see videos. -via Boing Boing
