Puppy With 2 Legs Gets Along Just Fine

the daily dish More on PawNation: Amputation, Disabled Pets, Dogs, Heart-Warming, Puppies

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.

Who is the artist and what is the title of this song? Maybe this clip can inspire someone who is suffering in some way.

They need to provide him with a wheel chair, this will help him tremendously. Running like that without his back legs is not the best for his spine and overall health. In any case, he is an adorable a resourceful sweet puppy. Please, please provide him with an appropriate wheel chair for dogs.

I dont' think this is a good situation for this dog's long-term health. He's going to suffer extreme pain from walking like that and he needs a wheelchair for a dog. Why can't the owners and vet see that this isn't a huge success?

I once had a dog with no legs. I named him \"Cigarette\" because every now and then I\'d take him out for a drag.

It really make me cry looking at this dog an his will to act normal. The fun part is that the other dogs have accepted him, unlike we humans. Thank you for having the faith and to have spared his life looking after him. Most importantly, thank you so much for sharing this amzing story this magnificent dog.
