A very brave and wonderful pup lost one of his legs to cancer, but Twitter chimed in to remind him that three-legged dogs can live awesome and happy lives.
The tripod dog’s loving owner, Dylan Delia, shared post-surgery photos of his now-healthy dog.
According to Delia, the surgery to amputate one of the pup’s legs was life-saving and eradicated the cancer.
“4 legs down to 3 but he beat cancer! Good job buddy,” Delia wrote in the tweet, which dog-loving Twitter users retweeted more than 18,000 times and liked more than 56,000 times.
The photos showed the adorable dog both pre-and-post operation, and the dog’s happy smile proves that you don’t need all of your legs to live your best life.

What’s more, owners of other tripod pets created a Twitter thread to show that the #doglife is indeed amazing, even on three legs.
