Disabled Dog Gets 3D Printed Legs! And It's A Beautiful Thing To See Him Run!

Aww! This is so sweet!

A dog named Derby has "always been the happiest dog" for his owner Sherry Portanova.

And why shouldn't he have been! He was rescued by Sherry from being put down at the pound — a awful thing that would've happened since Derby had underdeveloped front legs.

Luckily Derby's owner was also a director at a 3D printing firm, and with her help they've produced some sweet prosthetic legs for the pooch and they've worked beautifully so far!

Here's how Sherry described seeing her pup use his legs for the first time. She said:

"It was incredible and emotional the first time we saw him run on his new legs. Incredible because it was his very first time on them and emotional because he was so excited to be running…Derby was born with this deformity so he never really knew any different; he was a happy dog. However, his new legs have allowed him to run on concrete, play with other dogs and overall be more mobile."

Aww!

The power of an owner's love for their pet is certainly an inspiring one.

But we're betting it was Derby's enthusiasm for life despite his disability that really inspired Sherry to make things happen.

And, luckily for Derby and the rest of world, she followed through with her vision to get Derby running!
