The story of a local Boston terrier puppy and his journey to live has gone viral.

Meet Mick – he was born with a birth defect called “swimmer puppy syndrome”. His legs were splayed out and he could walk.

Many puppies like this are euthanized but The Mia Foundation based in Greece took Mick in when he was just six weeks old. After a few weeks of therapy, like putting him in a harness to practice swimming to gain strength in his legs, he is now walking on his own.
