Quasimodo, affectionately known as Quasi, is a German Shepherd with a rare genetic condition called Short Spine Syndrome.

Found as a stray, this sweet pup ended up at Secondhand Hounds rescue in Minnesota.

Despite the challenges his twisted spine might bring, Quasi remains an absolute trooper.

After being fostered briefly, the rescue decided to make him a permanent part of their family.

Quasi handled his vet visits and x-rays like a champ, unfazed by it all.

Now, he’s living his best life with his forever family, wagging his tail and soaking up all the love.

His resilience and zest for life inspire everyone he meets.

Quasi’s journey reminds us that every dog deserves a loving home, no matter their circumstances.

This brave pup is living proof that a little compassion can change a life.
