Pig the Unusual Dog

  1. Angel Tobey

    Hand in Paw, an Alabama based animal-assisted therapy organization, is in the process of training a dog named Pig as therapy animal. Pig is unique in that she was born with a birth defect known as Short Spine Syndrome. The organization hopes to use Pig for hospital visitation and thinks she would be a great fit for their anti-bullying program due to the fact that she also struggles through social and physical challenges. To learn more about Pig read this article or visit Pig‘s Facebook Page.
