Puppy With 2 Legs Gets Along Just Finethe daily dish
A Boxer puppy who lost his hind legs at 8 weeks of age, due to a congenital deformity, doesn't seem to be letting his disability affect his spirit. The plucky pup still gets along happily on his two legs.
The puppy, named Duncan Lou Who, came to Panda Paws Rescue in Vancouver, Wash., with hind legs and a pelvis that were all severely deformed. The contortion was damaging the puppy's spine to a degree that his caretakers were left with only two options: euthanasia or amputation. Believing in Duncan's will to live, they removed his legs and spared his life.
Despite the amputation, Duncan was running around on his forelimbs mere hours after his surgery, disabled but free from the excruciating pain he was suffering from his deformities. Now the 4-month-old puppy has a chance for a full and happy life.
