Puppies are some of the purest creatures on this planet. There is nothing a puppy loves more than being with their human.

Because puppies are tiny and cute, depending on the breed, there can be a huge issue with overbreeding in puppy mills. The issue isn’t just too many puppies in one space.

According to PETA, breeding puppies for profit can come at a high cost. The puppy’s health.

“Inbreeding causes painful and life-threatening genetic defects in “purebred” dogs and cats, including crippling hip dysplasia, blindness, deafness, heart defects, skin problems, and epilepsy. Distorting animals for specific physical features also causes severe health problems.”

One health issue that many breeders have seen is Swimmer’s Syndrome. The condition is where the puppy is splayed out on their belly and cannot walk.

According to The Mia Foundation, Swimmer’s Syndrom is, “The term ‘swimmer’ is used to describe a puppy that paddles his legs much like a turtle, but is unable to stand. A puppy should be standing and walking by three weeks of age. As a result of weak muscles in the rear limbs, swimmers are generally unable to stand at the normal age.”

Sadly, Swimmer’s Syndrome is like a death sentence to most puppies, especially ones that are with people who do not have the time to care for a sick animal.

When Casper was born, his breeder immediately realized something was wrong with him and scheduled for him to be put to sleep.

But then Gina Gould got a call from Coastal German Shepard Rescue letting her know about Casper. Rather than let everyone give up on Casper, Gina immediately stepped in.

Gina, an Acuscope Biotechnician, got Casper and brought him to a veterinarian. The doctor was concerned about Casper’s health. he told Gina:

“We usually ethanize puppies with Swimmer’s Syndrome. His diagnosis was that his heart was very weak, his pulse was faint, he was lethargic and not a good prospect for survival. Maybe he’d walk in three months, but chances are he won’t, if he survives.”

Gina brought Casper home and began his Acuscope therapy. He wasn’t very responsive, so she feared that he was also deaf, which wasn’t a good sign.

Gina feared that Casper wouldn’t even make it through the night, but when she woke up the next morning, it was like she was meeting a brand new puppy.

As you can see in the video below, with love, therapy, and special attention and care, Casper made an incredible recovery!
