Mick was born with 'Swimmer Puppy Syndrome'. This condition meant that he was unable to walk, stand or even sit because all four of his legs were splayed out. The poor thing could only lie on his stomach.

Thankfully for him, the Mia Foundation in Rochester, New York, took him in. It was this little puppy's lucky day when the foundation, which takes in animals with birth defects that might otherwise be put down, agreed to try to help him.

And so began his journey to recovery. To begin with, they propped him up to take the weight off his chest. They then placed him in a harness to put his legs, which were also taped, into the correct resting position.
