It’s almost impossible to look at these images of an adorable, two-legged boxer and not feel touched. Panda Paws Rescue, a special needs canine rescue, recently uploaded a video of the dog Duncan Lou Who having the time of his life on his first trip to the beach. Despite only having two front legs, the spunky pooch is filmed sprinting across the sand, playing with the rescue workers and other dogs, and splashing around in water with obvious delight.
It’s incredibly uplifting to see this inspirational dog living his life to the fullest, especially after knowing his back story. Duncan was born with severely deformed rear legs that had to be amputated. He was given a customized doggie wheelchair, but hated using it, so the rescue workers now let him run free on his two legs. As can be seen from the video, Duncan doesn’t let his disability hinder him at all. Instead, he approaches everything with a lively and upbeat attitude–a reminder of the joy and wonder of living.
