Herman suffers from a neurological disease and has been a resident at The Mia Foundation for over a year. He was rescued from a parking lot in New York after passers-by realized he was unable to fly. Experts deemed Herman’s condition untreatable and prepared to euthanize him, but Sue Rogers, founder of The Mia Foundation, stepped in to provide Herman a safe haven to live out his remaining years.
Lundy arrived at The Mia Foundation from North Carolina with a condition called “swimmer’s syndrome,” which makes him unable to move his hind legs. The only symptom of a swimmer puppy is his inability to stand or walk by the normal age of three weeks. The puppy will instead lay on his chest and paddle his feet as if attempting to swim in a turtle-like fashion.
