Pup Gets Life-Changing Surgery After a Lifetime of Crawling

A rescued pit bull has become a "tap dancer," in the words of his owner, after having reconstructive surgery to fix a rare deformity that left him only able to crawl.

Roscoe, a pitbull, was born with a deformity that left his front legs partially bent backwards under his wrists, according to ABC News affiliate WLOS-TV in Asheville, North Carolina. As a result he was forced to walk on his wrists, with the front part of his legs bent backward like "flippers."
