Pig was born in Atlanta – she was abandoned alongside her littermates in the woods. Her tiny size and birth defects make it amazing that she survived. Her littermates were able to beckon for help while little Pig stayed behind. Soon the pups were in the care of some good people who took them in.
Pig is an 8 month old Akita mix, she’s missing some ribs, part of her spine, she has twisted vertebrae and her spinal cord splits in two by her neck. She might look like a photoshop but she is the real deal and when her owner Kim Dellenbeck met her it was love at first sight.
Dillenbeck took a trip to see her sister in Atlanta. Upon chance she happened to meet Pig. Pig was being cared for by a neighbor of Kim’s sister. When Dillenbeck met Pig she immediately decided to adopt the pup. The two of them now live in Alabama together.
