The dog has been at a Devore animal shelter in San Bernardino County since Tuesday night when animal control received reports of an injured dog in Highland.
Turns out he wasn’t injured. The dog was missing two legs, which lends him a wobbly albeit functioning gait.
With only two legs, the pooch stillÂ managed to outmaneuver the officer for some time until he finally was able to grab him.READ MORE: 'Banksy: Genius Or Vandal' Exhibit To Open In Early October
No one has come forward to claim dog and he will be placed up for adoption Sunday.
“It’s a truly special-needs dog, but it’s got a heart of gold,” Cronin said.
“This is a very loving dog and we hope to find him a loving home if his owner does not come forward,” he said. Â “He is a truly unique dog, not just because he has two legs, but because he is so capable and does not let his challenging circumstances slow him down.”MORE NEWS: Latino Restaurant Association Kicks Off DINE LATINO Restaurant Week
