Swimmer Puppy Syndrome is one of the saddest birth defects that can affect a newborn dog. Puppies born with it cannot walk; their flattened chest cavities compress and can damage their heart and other organs. Sadly, they don’t normally live longer than about eight weeks.

A breeder wasn’t just saddened when he saw that one of his Neapolitan mastiff puppies, Willow, was born with the syndrome; he was furious! He angrily posted about “the waste of money” on social media, saying he had plans to simply throw the “burdensome” puppy away. But then a miracle happened…

It’s disgusting that anyone would treat a dog like something that’s disposable. Thank goodness for the caring people at the rescue organization. Can you imagine what Willow’s fate would have been if they hadn’t acted so quickly?
