A dog that has no neck and a short spine has become an internet sensation after her owners created a Facebook page.

Pig, a female mixed-breed dog from Alabama, has short spine syndrome, an illness that means her limbs are normal-sized, but she she appears as though she has been chopped in half.

Pig’s owner Kim Dillenbeck said she found the eight-month-old as a puppy, abandoned in a forest.

‘She’s missing probably seven inches of spine, her hips and her joints are way up high at the base of her spine, and none of them are in the right position,’ she told Sky News.
