Mikeygus, short for Michelangelo Augustus, is a happy-go-lucky German shepherd dog who joyfully embraces life with dwarfism. He was diagnosed at 16 weeks, and lives with his mom, Amy, in Indiana.
Dwarfism is the result of a recessive gene that occurs in up to 20% of German shepherds. Mikeygus doesn’t let it get him down!
You can follow his adventures on Instagram. His handle? @practicallyperfectineveryway.
@thebuffalohunterjackalbert reminded us it's May 4th! May the fourth be with you!!!! (Imagine a line of emoticons depicting the cantina scene inserted here). In this house, loving Star Wars is essential (although, Psych takes a very close second?). Perhaps this is just one of the reasons our Shihtzu looks like an ewok, and our Dwarfed Shepherd looks like Yoda.?It was absolutely inevitable! #mikeygus #dwarfism #thegermanshepherdworld #gsdstagram #germanshepherd #maythefourthbewithyou #maytheforcebewithyou #starwars #yoda #iamyodasdoppleganger #myshihtzulookslikeanewok #psych #moseisleycantina #whyaretherenostarwarsemojis PAWtners tagged!
