Yes, this is another sad story about people being irresponsible. It’s like, what the heck? Right?
Walter is a Miniature Pinscher whose severe deformities are the result of careless inbreeding. He was surrendered by his former owners who gave him up after a year of keeping him in a cage and barely feeding or caring for him. They weren’t trying very hard — they weren’t trying at all. It’s one thing to maybe not train your dog in foundational obedience, but to be too lazy to provide even the most basic care is almost beyond my comprehension.
