Duncan Lou is a 9-month old boxer puppy who was born with an abnormality in his hind legs. His legs were so severely deformed that they had to be removed. While Duncan has been given wheelchairs, he wasn’t a fan of them, according to Panda Paws Rescue.

“He has had wheelchairs custom built & he hated them. Rather then using them to support his body, he would lift them up & carry them around.” say Panda Paws. “So we let him be free and just walk on his two legs.”

Not just walk, though. Duncan jumps and hops, dances and runs. Oh, does he run! Panda Paws Rescue recently posted a video of Duncan’s day at the beach. Not only is Duncan’s speed and energy amazing, his lust for life and pure bliss while on the shore is simply heartwarming.

Prepare to be amazed and check out the video below! Go Duncan, go!
