Quasi The Hunchback Hound


RACHEL: He is a true German shepherd, just shortened. COMM: 4-year-old German shepherd Quasimodo is believed to be one of just 15 dogs worldwide
living with short spine syndrome. COMM: And his unusual looks have made him a social media star. RACHEL: It’s crazy how viral it went. I mean we had no idea. I teased it on our Facebook
page a few weeks ago, and it got a nice amount of likes but nothing like out of control,
and then as soon as we made a Facebook page for him, which is ‘Quasi The Great’; he
stoles everybody’s hearts, you know. So I have been working really hard at making
sure that we are posting about him and really showing his personality, showcasing who he
is because to be honest he represents a much bigger group. Quasi was actually found running
as a stray in Kentucky and they couldn’t catch him, it actually took them 5 days to
catch him and they had to use a live trap. Quasi was really fearful and scared of people
at first. The first day I met him he was so scared and shy and I thought, “I wonder
if this dog really does enjoy life,” and as soon as I got him home I realised how much
he does enjoy life. He is goofy, he is playful, he loves girl dogs, he thinks he is Casanova,
not Quasimodo. I think anybody that sees him kind of falls in love with him. COMM: Quasimodo is now being cared for at Second Hand Hounds in Minnesota. RACHEL: Second Hand Hounds was founded in 2009. I was fully pregnant with my daughter
and I always joked that hormones made me do it. We save thousands of animals a year. We
are almost at 10,000 since 2009. SARA: Quasi has what’s called short spine syndrome. Basically what that means is that
the vertebra in his back are compressed and he is actually missing a couple of them. Right
now we are not really sure what he will need in the future. We are having him see our specialist
again to kind of make sure that nothing else needs to be done. Right now he is just on
pain meds. He is doing great, he is mobile. RACHEL: He loves to nibble, he is very mouthy. He loves to herd, if he sees something running
he wants to chase. COMM: Quasi does have to do some things differently because of his condition. RACHEL: Because of his neck, it’s really hard for him to bend down to eat his food,
so elevated food bowls or me holding it like this is typically what we do. COMM: The team have sent a vial of Quasi’s blood to geneticists at the University of
California to help discover what causes his rare condition. And while they have already
received 1,200 applications to re-home him, Rachel and her family are in no rush to part
with their unusual dog. RACHEL: He is a sweet dog. It’s going to be hard to let him go. Right now we are just
trying to find out more about his personality so we can make a perfect match for him. But
I urge everybody that has been inquiring about him to go to their local shelter and find
a dog that’s a great match for them because Quasimodo is one of millions in the shelters
in the US and worldwide who need a home.

    I would take care of any dog. Even if they looked like that.

  37. X X says:

    Why would you give him to others. He's at home with you. And feels safe. He obviously loves and thinks he's yours. Please don't take a chance giving him a different home. I've seen deceptive adopters. THE ABSOLUTELY NICEST PEOPLE YOU WOULD THINK. But it's very different when they have the animal that they have adopted.
    I have so many stories, I can't tell you. I just with a complete heart say to you why do this to this beautiful dog that is so attached to you.
