With Two Broken Legs, Persistent Pup Learns to Walk on Hind Legs

Posted September 12, 2014 in A Pet's Life

Sometimes, fourteen seconds is all it takes to be amazed. With over 1 million views on YouTube, this quick video shows one of the most determined dogs I’ve seen. In the video description, Jason Sanders explains that his dog had broken both of her legs when she jumped off of a 6 foot deck.

The brief clip shows the dog carefully approaching an open sliding door on her hind legs before hoping through. This little pup didn’t let her broken legs and cone slow her down as she pranced proudly through the door like an absolute pro. It’s both heartwarming and amazing to see a dog learn to overcome obstacles.
