In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Mick the dog.
The baby Boston Terrier was born with swimmer puppy syndrome, which means that Mick' legs were splayed out to all side. He couldn't walk, stand or even lift his head. Dogs like this often die from pressure on their chests, and even worse, they are euthanized because people don't know what to do with them.
But not the volunteers at The Mia Foundation. They put little Mick through weeks of intensive therapy sessions in the tub to strengthen his legs. They hung him in a harness multiple times a day and even taped his legs together to coax them into the right position. Finally, after all that time and dedication, Mick learned to walk.
He is not 100% yet, but he gets better every day, and when he's ready, he will be adopted and have a normal life. The people who helped Mick are sharing his story to show what is possible with a little time and effort.
