A dog named Dexter is not letting his disability keep him from putting smiles on the faces of everyone he meets.
Dexter makes his home in Ouray, Colorado, and the bipedal pup, a Brittany Spaniel, is always getting attention, CBS News reported Friday.
Owner Kentee Pasek told the outlet walking upright on his back legs was something he began doing when he was very young after being hit by a car, causing him to lose one front leg.
The pup used a wheelchair for a time, but, when Pasek left him at the bottom of her porch stairs one day, she came back to find he had somehow managed to climb the stairs on his own.
The woman placed him back at the bottom of the stairs and watched in amazement as he climbed the stairs again on two back legs.
Dexter sees the veterinarian on a regular basis to make sure he remains in top condition, and the veterinarian believes it is best for him to do what he enjoys.
“I am recovering from intensive radiation treatments for breast cancer and you certainly bring joy to my day,” a person who regularly sends him mail said.
