Meet Skipper: The Puppy Born With Six Legs and Two Tails

A puppy in Oklahoma is gaining national attention and not just because it's adorable!

Well she is, but she's also rather unique.

Skipper, a border collie/Australian shepherd mix, was born a week ago with six legs and two tails.

Dr. Tina Neel and the staff at Neel Veterinary Hospital are taking care of the pup and says despite her outward appearance, she behaves like a normal puppy.

X-rays show Skipper has one head and chest cavity, but two pelvic regions, two lower urinary tracts, two reproductive regions along with the six legs and two tails.

Dr. Neel says it's likely Skipper will need some physical therapy as she continues to grow and gets used to walking around on six paws.
