Dwarf Dog MikeyGus Will Melt Your Heart

Dwarf Dog MikeyGus Will Melt Your Heart


SAMANTHA CARKUFF: MikeyGus feels like he is my best buddy. He is part of the family. COMM: MikeyGus lives with the Carkuff family and his two parents Spartacus and Temperance,
and he is just like any other puppy, except that he was born with dwarfism. COMM: MikeyGus appeared to be a normal puppy until a vet visited the family when he was
just 10 weeks old and noticed some abnormalities. COMM: Six weeks later, he was officially diagnosed with dwarfism. AMY CARKUFF: Spartacus and Temperance treat MikeyGus pretty much like they would any other
dog. Temperance does tend to be a little more motherly towards MikeyGus, Spartacus is a
little more indifferent. AMY CARKUFF: When they play, and MikeyGus is playing with them, they are a lot more careful. COMM: His condition caused his growth to be stunted, which stopped this puppy from being
able to walk at just six months old. But owners Amy and Heath worked to rehabilitate him until
he was able to walk again. AMY CARKUFF: MikeyGus has taught me a lot about determination, ambition and not giving up. SAMANTHA CARKUFF: MikeyGus is always very
cuddly and lovely. I don’t know who could not love MikeyGus.
AMY CARKUFF: My favourite thing about MikeyGus is that he is just absolutely loving, loves to play. AMY CARKUFF: He never gives up, he thinks he is like everybody else. COMM: It’s likely that this form of dwarfism was caused by a defect in his pituitary gland
which amongst other symptoms can mean a decreased life expectancy. However, to be sure it wasn’t
a genetic issue, they have also stopped breeding with MikeyGus’ parents. Despite this, the
family are embracing all the time they have with their unusual, but loving pet. SAMANTHA CARKUFF: MikeyGus thinks he is a normal dog and his disability doesn’t stop
him from walking and running.

  8. Hes not diffrent has so cute and hes like a mini cutness overload bodyguard dog

  9. People seem to be uneducated about what a good breeder is and the german shepherd breed. Around 11% of gsd's are carriers of the gene which also means you can genetically test your breeding stock before you breed them to see if they have the gene or not, and it only takes one parent. Good breeders know the importance of genetic testing because not only are gsd's prone to dwarfism they have a multitude of health issues that should be ruled out like hip and elbow dysplasia. But instead of doing the right thing and genetically testing their dogs, they breed them anyways and make a poor dog suffer it's whole life because the owners didn't buy good breeding stock, didn't educate themselves on the risk of breeding gsd and on top of that didn't do any genetic testing. Im sorry but this is not the definition of a good breeder because good breeders breed dogs in order to better the breed not make it worse.

  63. Who knew German shepherds with dwarfism look like corgis

  64. I hope the people don't live in that trailer. It doesn't look like it's in good shape.

  65. Thought that good doggo was a German Shepherd corgi mix, he’s still absolutely adorable.

  66. Now I want to cut my gsd's legs to make it look like that

  67. He’s trying his best

  68. He looks kind of like a cat, or does he not?

    Just me?… ok…

  69. Did she say that he lives with the Caca family?

  70. This does bring a smile to my face.

  71. If bears and tigers had dwarfinsm

  72. Awww his little legs

  73. lol his ear is turned backwards

  74. AAAAAAHHHHH I WANT ONEEEEEE

  75. For the people who dislikes this video , will get punched in their face bc the dog is SOOO CUTE AND ADORABLE and I just WISH I had Mikeygus

  76. I wish people won’t try to change normal German Shepherds to dwarf ones
    Because it will greatly diminish the capabilities of a normal German Shepherd because in my opinion we should just let dog on what they are now and not forcefully breed just to make them “cute” because in my opinion the best dog is one that has “functionality” meaning dog with normal features that are not far from their wolf ancestors

  77. How can this dog look so young yet so old?

  78. I love him he is so adorable❤️❤️

  79. It's crazy how dogs can help eachother

  80. Those puppers are so cute

  81. ITS SO WEIRD HEARING A GERMAN SHEPHARD BARK COMING FROM A DOG THAT SMALL LIKE WOAH THERE SONNY CALM DOWN

  82. Don’t touch me I’m soft????

  83. Yeah he's cute and all but whatever you do don't breed him
    I don't want people to ruin sheepherds too

  84. Why don't people adopt dogs with dwarfism and other disabilities? I actually think they are one of the cutest things ever.

  85. Omg omg omg omg that dog is soooooooooooooooooooo cute!!!! ???
