They say he’s half a Bulldog but twice the love!
Everyone, meet Bonsai–an English Bulldog puppy with multiple rare deformities. Bonsai was born on April 27th 2015 with just half of his spine. He has no functional pelvis and has malformed rear legs. His hind legs are tiny and contracted. They call his condition Sacral Agenesis (Caudal Regression Syndrome) and Sacrocaudal Dysgenesis – likely combined with a variation of Spina Bifida.
Aside from that, Bonsai also has Swimmer’s Syndrome–a condition in which the chest of the newborn pup is dangerously flat and the functioning legs splay out to the sides – putting pressure on the internal organs.
In the video below, you will see Bonsai 9 days after undergoing a bilateral amputation of the rear legs. He may just be half a dog, but he’s still as adorable as ever! He’s living his life to the fullest despite of the many challenges he’s facing! Watch this adorable cutie in the video below!
