Dexter is a Brittany Spaniel from Ouray, Colorado that has become an internet celebrity for his human-like way of getting around.
Dexter was hit by a car when he was a puppy. He lost one leg and severely damaged another in the accident. Dexter’s owner thought he would need an adaptive device to get around for the rest of his life, but he surprised her one afternoon when he started walking around on his hind legs.
Yes. Everything about this story is 100% accurate. Dexter wasn’t trained to walk around on his hind legs. He simply adapted to his injuries. He’s absolutely incredible!
Check out the segment from CBS Sunday Morning followed by clips from Dexter’s Instagram (@dexterdogouray).
Watching Dexter walk around on two legs is a little uncomfortable at first, but it grows on you with time. At this point I can’t stop scrolling through his Instagram to watch him walk around town like a human. It’s the best.
Dexter looks like the goodest boy. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did and be sure to follow Dexter on Instagram (@dexterdogouray).
