Watch Derby the disabled dog run for the first time using 3D printed prosthetic legs

Derby, a Husky mix dog born with severely deformed front paws, can now walk thanks to some of the latest 3D-printing technologies. The U.S.-based 3D Systems company created customized prosthetics for Derby that look like the legs on a rocking chair and finally let him outrun his humans!

It all started when Derby was fostered by Tara Anderson, who works at 3D Systems. He was going to be euthanized until he got picked up by Peace and Paws, a no-kill shelter that gave him a chance. Read more about their story below!
