WATCH: Rescue pup born with swimmer syndrome learns to walk

- A puppy named Duckie who was born with swimmer syndrome, a muscular condition that left him unable to walk properly, is now bounding to a full recovery and hoping to find a forever home.

Duckie had to undergo special physical therapy to teach him to walk properly and after only three weeks he was able to run around with joy. That’s despite the fact that his “front legs are still a little bow legged due to his condition, but they seem to be catching up with the rest of him.”

On January 2, Sacramento SPCA posted that Duckie was available for adoption, writing that while he was ideal for a home with dogs and cats, he “tends to be a little much for senior dogs.”
