Deformed puppy, rescued from trash, learns to walk | Today

Harper the pit bull was born with a condition called “swimmer puppy disorder,” and most dogs that have it don’t survive. The disorder causes rigid limbs and tight muscles, leaving puppies lying flat on their chests with their legs splayed out.

After being found in a garbage bag and taken to an animal shelter where she was scheduled to be euthanized, Harper was rescued by shelter worker Erica Daniel and can walk now thanks to hydrotherapy and love.
