Suffering from an extraordinarily rare congenital condition, this puppy has six legs and two tails. Doctors have yet to find a puppy born with an extra pair of legs who survived. Yet, despite the odds being completely against it surviving this, Skippers is absolutely thriving - staying healthy and strong. 

Doctors are even saying that the extra pair of legs may help her with her balance and stability. We hope the little pupper continues living happily and for a very long time, with a forever family that will be caring and take care of it in all the ways that it needs.

Heartwarming Story Of A Survivor Brain Damaged Cat

Taking care of animals with health issues or behavior issues is always a challenge. It's hard to watch an innocent animal like that suffer when all you want is for them to be the happiest in the world. That difficulty, of course, is no reason to give up on them. And imgur user KDC0982 definitely didn't. 

The story of Gimli is a difficult one to read, but thanks to everything that KDC0982 has done for him, he is now much healthier and is happily getting cuddles on the couch with KDC0982's dad. Gimli is an absolute hero in our eyes, and his story is inspiring. We're so happy to see that he's better, and we wish he will get even better as he continues to live in this warm home.

This really is a heartfelt story! Meet Predator Defense, a national nonprofit advocacy organization funded primarily by member donations, their mission is to protect native predators. 

This is where the coyote cubs come in. Fice orphaned coyote pups who happened to all survive the summer without their parents is a truly heartwarming story. Predator defense visited the pups on multiple occasions to monitor their progress. This video includes footage of rare, haunting night-vision of these pups who move like ghostly spirits in the dark, 

In the description bio, Predator Defense discusses the importance of rescuing predators and coyotes, "Coyotes play a critical role in keeping a balance in the food chain.  They regulate smaller predator populations (e.g., mesopredators like foxes, opossums, and raccoons), which in turn allows mesopredators' smaller prey (e.g., bird species) to survive. Without this balance, many species are at risk. Currently, a war is being waged on coyotes and other vital native predators by "wildlife management" agencies.  Their approach threatens the balance of nature and harms innocent wildlife, pets, and humans in the process.

With its long legs and long neck, the serval is nicknamed the "giraffe cat." These amazing athletes can jump up to nine feet in the air to catch prey. But this feline faces a difficult road ahead as habitat loss and the illegal pet trade are reducing its numbers in the wild.

Baby Albino Turtle Born With Her Heart Beating Outside of Her Shell Survived Against All Odds

According to Caters New Agency, the albino pinkbelly sideneck turtle was born with her heart exposed. In humans, this condition is called ectopia cordis, but in veterinary medicine there is no name for the life-threatening genetic defect. Even with her heart beating outside of her shell, the baby turtle, named Hope, has defied the odds and survived. Hope lives with her owner Michael Aquilina in New Jersey. Aquilina, known as AquaMike on Instagram, was given the turtle by a friend who felt Aquilina had the passion and experience to give Hope the longest, happiest life possible. The little turtle arrived at Aquilina's home in November 2018 and continues to grow stronger with each passing day.

A kitteh named Sugar survived a 19-story fall from her owner's Boston apartment.

Sugar landed on a small patch of mulch, which helped lessen the impact of the fall. Animal Rescue League of Boston assistant manager Mike Brammer said Sugar's "flying-squirrel"-like ability to glide also helped her survive the harrowing ordeal.

Sugar's hoomin, Brittney Kirk, who was tracked down via a microchip implanted in her cat, says she left the window open so that Sugar wouldn't get too hot. "[I]f there were a cat to fall 19 stories and to be fine, I think it would definitely be Sugar, because she's a pretty special cat," she said.

Special, indeed! Thank goodness kittehs have nine lives!
