Who doesn't like a nice run along the beach?

Duncan Lou, a boxer puppy who was born with severely deformed  rear legs that had to removed, certainly enjoys his first trip to the beach. The video was taken by Panda Paws Rescue.

Lou has a wheel chair, but he doesn't like to use it. Instead he's become a very proficient two-legged runner! Check out Panda Paws Rescue's Youtube channel for more Duncan Lou videos.

"Culled at birth?" That's a pretty horrific choice of words James Hosty. Yes, it's very hard to watch, although the dog can run faster than I can. No doubt his life will be greatly shortened by the strain put on the front portion of his body, but as long as he seems happy and not suffering, then we should be happy for him. I'm not saying I would have made the same choice if my dog, but glad he has such caring owners.

"look unhappy?" Only you are silly enough to treat a dog as a human. Do dogs even HAVE emotions? He "seems" happy? Why, because his mouth is open? that's how he sweats. And humans are also "culled" at birth, if they are mutant freaks.

Perhaps you're mother should have exercised her constitutional right to make a choice prior to your birth! Do Dogs have emotions - you bet. They also have intelligence. Doctors who cull humans at birth are known as murderers and tried as such regardless of whether the child is perfect, less than perfect or what you see when you look in a mirror - the "mutant freak" of which you speak.

What...What ? This a "Sunday Smile". The article takes your attention away from the local news; murders, fires, drugs & so on. Boxer Lou is doing what all dogs do IN A GOOD ENVIORMENT. He most certainly appears to be healthy and happy! Perhaps some of the commenters should consider a visit to the vet for themselves and make arrangements.......! ASAP ! !
