Watch two legged Boxer Duncan Lou Who on his first trip to the beach:
Duncan was born with severely deformed rear legs that had to be removed. He has a wheel chair, but can’t stand to use it. So we let him be free and just walk on his two legs. There is some slow motion in this video, but NONE of the video has been sped up, this gives you an idea of how fast Duncan really is.
When Duncan’s puppy video went viral in November 2013, rescue owner Amanda Giese noted that he was doing physical therapy and hydrotherapy daily. By the look of this video, the exercise and therapy are paying off.

It’s definitely one of the more strange and fascinating demonstrations that we’ve seen.
