Meet the Ouray, Colorado Dog who walks upright

He’s a viral sensation with a million social media followers, and he’s bringing hope and inspiration to people all over the world.

Dexter is a 7-year-old Brittany spaniel who walks around his Colorado hometown of Ouray, on his two back paws.

“As a puppy, he was hit by a car. We knew we were going to have to get rid of one of the arms. We didn’t know that the other arm had more damage to the elbow, so he had about five or six different surgeries. And all the sudden, he’s walking upright," said his owner, Kentee Pasek.

Dexter’s social media followers have even made special trips to town, hoping to meet him in person.

Dexter is the star of parades, national news stories, late-night comedy shows — and a staple of social media.

“We have him on TikTok, InstagramYouTube and Facebook. And he has about a million followers in general with all of those added up,” Pasek said.
