Tilly's extremely strange appearance makes it look like she's missing the middle section between her front and back legs. But there's no reason to laugh at or make fun of the little dog.

As her owner explained on her Instagram account, Tilly suffers from a very rare dog disease called short spine syndrome, which means that the little Tibetan Spaniel's backbone is short due to a genetic defect.

All kinds of dog can be born with this syndrome, but it seems to be quite uncommon. In 2016, there were reportedly only 14 dogs in the world that suffered from it.
