(WLEX) A two-legged dog is defying the odds.
Deuce has two legs both on the right side of his body. He was found badly injured in a ditch in April and both of his legs on his left side were broken and badly infected.
"Despite very aggressive medical treatment there was nothing we could do," said Jean Gibowski, the founder of Camp Jean Dog Rescue in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
Gibowski said that any other solution than euthanasia didn't seem possible at the time, but after taking the dog home for a couple of days, she noticed that he wasn't using the two injured legs, so she and the vets at Brighton Animal Clinic opted to amputate both legs.
Less than 24 hours later, Deuce was on the move.
"He absolutely doesn't know he's not supposed to be running around with two legs," said Gibowski.
Deuce is now an internet celebrity.
"I have more people message me on Facebook and Instagram saying he's such an inspiration, proves nothing is impossible," said Gibowski.
