Biped Dog

I don't know if Faith is old news or not, but I just learned about her the other day.

Faith is a dog who was born with three legs, one of which atrophied because it was not functional and had to be amputated after a few months (a lot of the Youtube videos say she was born with two legs, but her website says otherwise). Her owners taught her how to stand on her two remaining legs, how to hop like a kangaroo, and eventually how to walk bipedally.

Apologies that the clip is from a talk show, but it was the most detailed one I could find. Youtube has more videos of Faith, as well videos of other two-legged dogs.
