A dog that was born with only two legs and was abandoned to die has adapted to life by walking on her two front paws.
Putol, a six-year-old Filipino dog with a congenital malformation, is frequently spotted running alongside other canines and wandering the streets of Casiguran in Quezon City.
Putol, whose name means “chopped” in the Luzonian language of Tagalog, is now able to balance herself thanks to the assistance of her owner Danilo Codilego Jr.
The dog, who has become a neighborhood favorite owing to her bravery and zest for life, entered Mr. Codilego’s life when a coworker from his former job showed up with four puppies.
The other puppies were adopted, but tiny Putol with two legs was passed over.
They believed she wouldn’t live very long. The only person with the fortitude to help her was me. We gambled because we felt sorry for her. Other than Putol, we were at a loss for words.
Putol had trouble walking for the first two years of her life, but she eventually learned to balance herself on her front legs.
The six-year-old dog, who is fiercely devoted to her master, is now frequently spotted defending Mr. Codilego’s home.
Putol behaves like a guard dog, barking whenever a stranger approaches, continued Mr. Codilego.
She also seems envious if I focus on another dog. Other than that, she is amiable and well-liked in the neighborhood.
She has no issues when I have to travel for work because she is taken care of by everyone.
She is not particular. She enjoys the meals we have.
But she cannot become pregnant given her condition.
