Having only two legs doesn’t stop Duncan Lou, a 16-week-old boxer puppy, from running and loving his life.
Born with severely deformed rear legs and a misshapen pelvis, the bones in his legs were completely fused and amputation was the only option. But Duncan, like so many animals, doesn’t appear to know he is different… and he hasn’t slowed down.
Says Panda Paws Rescue, the uploaders of the video:
We chose to amputate his rear legs making him a double amputee & giving him the greatest chance at a wonderful life when he was just 12 weeks old. Duncan Lou Who doesn’t let his unique differences slow him down & he doesn’t know he is any different. He is now 16 weeks old, does physical therapy every day to correct the damage to his spine since birth, is regularly going to be doing hydrotherapy for life to help support his muscles and he also has a custom wheelchair to give him a second option of mobility. Duncan Lou Who is on a mission… to inspire YOU!
I can only hope I have the same resilience, determination and sheer joy if I ever face similar challenges. Thanks to Panda Paws Rescue – and this special dog – for sharing your message!
