Dog born with deformed legs learns to run again — VIDEO

Greenville, SC — Derby’s story has spread from New Hampshire to across the nation as video and photos of him running freely bring joy to pet lovers the world over.

According to a 3D Systems’ YouTube video posted on Monday, Derby was born with deformed front legs and was brought in to the Peace and Paws shelter before he landed in a foster home with Tara Anderson.

Though he was able to get around with a special set of wheels, Anderson said she felt he wasn’t getting to express his energy properly so with the help of her company, they designed specialty 3D-printed legs to allow Derby to run free.

According to 3D Systems, Derby will be fitted with progressively longer legs until he reaches his optimal height. People can follow his progress through a Facebook page created for him here with his new adoptive family.

Derby appears to be enjoying his new prosthetics greatly as seen in the video above.
