It is scary to think that so many animals are put down because people do not understand the conditions they are born with.
Casper is a pure white Siberian husky puppy that was born with swimmer syndrome, a condition that makes it nearly impossible for a dog to walk or stand.
He was splayed out on his belly and the breeder who was trying to sell him didn’t know what do for him, so he scheduled him to be put down.
Coastal German Shepherd Rescue got news of Casper’s predicament and knew they needed to buy him some time. This puppy didn’t deserve to die!
Gina, an Acuscope biotechnician, was committed to saving Casper and brought him to a veterinarian. The vet had a similar plan as the breeder and suggested they euthanize him.
