A HUNCHBACK dog who found internet fame after being rescued from the street has found a loving new home. Four-year-old Quasimodo is believed to be one of just 15 dogs worldwide living with short-spine syndrome.
The rare condition has left him with virtually no neck but his new family say he is enjoying a new lease of life at his home in Secondhand Hounds in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA – and even earned nearly 100,000 likes on his Facebook page.
Quasimodo grew up in a kennel and had been in a southern shelter according to his Facebook page.Staff at the shelter named him after the well-known Disney character from the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
X-ray images of the animal shows that his spine is twisted and gnarly. His internal organs are also severely compressed as a result.However, Quasimodo has a full-sized head and legs.
