A woman scratces the head of Pig, a dog born with severe deformities, at a park in Alabaster, Ala., on Tuesday, June 17, 2014. Found with littermates in woods near Atlanta, the 8-month-old mutt was adopted by Kim Dillenbeck of Helena, Ala.
ALABASTER, Ala. (AP) -- Pig is the kind of dog that commands attention.
Born in Atlanta with severe deformities and adopted by an Alabama woman, the 8-month-old mutt has gangly legs, a body that appears to have been chopped in half and no neck.
Pig looks like one of those fake animals created with Photoshop to draw clicks on websites, yet she's real.
The little dog became a star after owner Kim Dillenbeck took her to a community event in Birmingham last month, and Pig now has her own Facebook page with thousands of followers. She's also featured in some online videos.
A veterinarian says Pig is healthy and doesn't know she looks different than other dogs.
