Landis looks like he’s a puppy, but he’s actually a two-year-old fully grown male pit bull. The reason he’s so small is because for the first two years of his life, Landis was locked in a cage — he was never even let out one time. His spine developed a curvature and his knees never developed properly because he had never been able to full stand.
An Angel In Disguise
Landis’s puppy prayers were answered when he was rescued by the people at Second Chance. The team decided that Landis was worth their effort, and he’s been receiving a lot of physical therapy to correct his malformation as a result of being in the cage.
