Dog Born Without Neck, And Butt On Back, Still Defies The Odds

The American foxhound was born on a puppy farm “without a neck,” and was never expected to thrive. Several of his vertebrae were compressed and fused together while he was in the womb.Now two years old, Cooper’s rare condition isn’t holding him back, even if it means he has to turn his entire body to look behind himself.

Cooper was rescued in 2017 when animal control officers in Halifax, Virginia, found him near a puppy mill. Just two months old at the time, he was taken to Minnetonka-based Secondhand Hounds.The officers that rescued Cooper think he might have been abandoned because of his rare condition.
