Meet Quasimodo, a purebred German shepherd who just happens to have a really short spine.

Quasimodo is the product of an extremely rare condition called short spine syndrome and is believed to be one of only 13 known such dogs in the world.

According to the Secondhand Hounds animal shelter in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Quasimodo was found as a stray. After receiving the stout dog on Friday, staff initially believed that he had lived his life in a kennel. However, he was later diagnosed with short spine syndrome.
