Dwarf Dog MikeyGus Will Melt Your Heart


SAMANTHA CARKUFF: MikeyGus feels like he is my best buddy. He is part of the family. COMM: MikeyGus lives with the Carkuff family and his two parents Spartacus and Temperance,
and he is just like any other puppy, except that he was born with dwarfism. COMM: MikeyGus appeared to be a normal puppy until a vet visited the family when he was
just 10 weeks old and noticed some abnormalities. COMM: Six weeks later, he was officially diagnosed with dwarfism. AMY CARKUFF: Spartacus and Temperance treat MikeyGus pretty much like they would any other
dog. Temperance does tend to be a little more motherly towards MikeyGus, Spartacus is a
little more indifferent. AMY CARKUFF: When they play, and MikeyGus is playing with them, they are a lot more careful. COMM: His condition caused his growth to be stunted, which stopped this puppy from being
able to walk at just six months old. But owners Amy and Heath worked to rehabilitate him until
he was able to walk again. AMY CARKUFF: MikeyGus has taught me a lot about determination, ambition and not giving up. SAMANTHA CARKUFF: MikeyGus is always very
cuddly and lovely. I don’t know who could not love MikeyGus.
AMY CARKUFF: My favourite thing about MikeyGus is that he is just absolutely loving, loves to play. AMY CARKUFF: He never gives up, he thinks he is like everybody else. COMM: It’s likely that this form of dwarfism was caused by a defect in his pituitary gland
which amongst other symptoms can mean a decreased life expectancy. However, to be sure it wasn’t
a genetic issue, they have also stopped breeding with MikeyGus’ parents. Despite this, the
family are embracing all the time they have with their unusual, but loving pet. SAMANTHA CARKUFF: MikeyGus thinks he is a normal dog and his disability doesn’t stop
him from walking and running.

  44. Some Guy says:

    I wish people won’t try to change normal German Shepherds to dwarf ones
    Because it will greatly diminish the capabilities of a normal German Shepherd because in my opinion we should just let dog on what they are now and not forcefully breed just to make them “cute” because in my opinion the best dog is one that has “functionality” meaning dog with normal features that are not far from their wolf ancestors
