The puppy surprised a host of veterinaries in America after it happened to be unique in a litter, of more than eight pups, in which it was born.
The puppy is a progeny of two different breeds, Border Collie and Australian shepherd, the vets that attended to it attributing its unusual appearance to some kind of miracle.
"This is a miracle named Skipper. Literally, she has survived longer than we suspect any other canine has with her combination of congenital conditions. You might notice she looks a little different - 6 legs!" a vet in Neel Vet Hospital said.
The special puppy was born naturally on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, along with its eight brothers and sisters in Oklahoma during a big snowstorm as narrated by the lead vet at Neel Veterinary Hospital.
