At first glance, Duncan Lou doesn’t look different from other happy, bounding puppies. Looking closer, you can see that he’s very unique indeed. Duncan was born with severely deformed back legs that were amputated when he was just 12 weeks old.
The Blaze Says Panda Paws Rescue: Duncan Lou is a Boxer puppy who was born with severely deformed rear legs & pelvis. The bones in his legs were completely fused by the time he was 8 weeks & there was no way to correct them to save them. We chose to amputate his rear legs making him a double amputee & giving him the greatest chance at life when he was just 12 weeks old. Duncan Lou 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!
Duncan Lou even has wheels for long trips:
