An “unusual” dog called Pig that has no neck and a body that appears to have been chopped in half has become an internet sensation.

More than 27,000 people have joined a fans’ group in honour of the strange-looking animal, who is quickly becoming one of Alabama’s biggest stars.

Pig, who bears little resemblance to the curly-tailed farmyard animal, suffers from short spine syndrome and has bones that are fused together.

Her condition causes her to walk like a gorilla and she often loses her balance, toppling over like a toddler.

But she is not letting her disability get her down and her adventures are chronicled on a Facebook page called Pig the Unusual Dog.

Kim Dillenbeck, who adopted Pig after finding her in a forest, said her pet is “living life to the fullest”.

“She’s missing several inches of her spine (and) her joints, her hips … none of them are in the right position,” she added.

Dr Rachael Hudson-Breland, the vet who treats Pig, said the eight-month-old mutt is given “rock star” treatment at her clinic.

“I don’t think Pig really knows she looks different,” she said.

“She runs around, she plays. The only thing with Pig is … she has respiratory issues, so when she’s running around she gets a little more tired than most dogs.”

“Unwavering Loyalty: The Heartwarming Tale of Puppies Mourning Their Mother on the Railroad Tracks”

Near an abandoned railway, a group of unfortunate puppies managed to survive and make a modest living. One of the puppies stood out as exceptional, displaying unwavering loyalty to its mother. Sadly, the mother, an elderly dog, met a heart-wrenching fate after being struck by a passing train on the very railway track they called home.

Every day, this devoted puppy would come back to the railway, tirelessly searching the area for its mother. Unaware of her untimely demise and unable to comprehend her absence, the pup would discover a dry leaf, hop onto it, and with tender touches, lick away its own tears, as if silently imploring its mother to come back. This heart-wrenching routine persisted for several days until destiny intervened. A young girl stumbled upon the railway and bore witness to this poignant scene. Moved by an overwhelming surge of empathy, she felt an irresistible urge to assist these vulnerable puppies

She showed kindness by carrying a basket filled with cookies and drinks, and even extended it to the unique puppy. The one-of-a-kind puppy eagerly hopped onto the basket and enjoyed the provided nourishment. However, an underlying feeling of longing lingered as it repeatedly returned to the railway, settling on the dry leaf, seemingly forever in quest of its lost mother.

The touching story deeply moved the young woman, causing tears to well up in her eyes. Touched by the puppy’s heart-wrenching situation, she made a heartfelt decision. She would take this special pup under her wing, providing it with the warmth, shelter, and nurturing it so desperately required. From that point on, the unique pup found a new refuge, a fresh family, and a renewed opportunity for happiness. This story serves as a poignant reminder that love and care possess an extraordinary transformative power, capable of guiding us through even the most challenging of circumstances and illuminating our path with hope and resilience.
