3-Legged Rescue Puppy Climbing Stairs To The ‘Rocky’ Theme Is So Puplifting It Hurts

Holly, the triumphant little pup in the above video, has earned more than 25,000 YouTube views in just 4 days! Her story has been picked up by major news outlets like ESPN and Fox, and shared all over the world. She has become quite the Handi-capable Celebri-Beagle!


She is recovering amazingly well after her amputation surgery, and has now been officially adopted! According to her new folks, she doesn’t let a little inconvenience like a missing leg slow her down one bit. She enjoys running and “attacking” her much older, much larger fur siblings.

You can continue to follow her inspiring achievements as she grows up on Instagram @howly_berry.

Holly’s mom is still awaiting her forever home at Adopt An Angel Rescue in Wilmington, NC. She is heartworm positive, and currently undergoing treatment. The inspiring video of Holly victoriously tackling that staircase has brought much needed awareness to Adopt An Angel, and  the incredible work they do for dogs and cats. Let’s hope the publicity also helps Holly’s sweet mama find the home she deserves.

Like all 501(c)3 rescue organizations, Adopt An Angel depends on donations in order to keep saving dogs in need. Please support them on Facebook and visit their website if you’re interested in adopting, or if you’d like to contribute to their cause.
