A dog hasn’t let a congenital deformity get in the way of having a good time as he slides around the snow on custom made snowboards and wheels.

Gus, the one-year-old Carolina/Husky mix was born with a congenital deformity, meaning he is unable to use his front legs.

But that hasn’t stopped the playful pup from having a great time.

Thanks to a custom-made snowboard and wheels, Gus is able to frolic in the snow with his friends and owner Melody Rezzonico, 27, in beautiful Laramie, Wyoming.

Melody said: “Seeing Gus run and be able to keep up with other dogs is the best feeling in the world.

“Every time he puts his prosthetic legs on, he knows he’s going on an adventure and his face just lights up.

“As a dog, Gus has no clue that he’s any different from the others.

“He’s incredibly goofy, always wanting to wrestle, play tug of war, go on walks, beg for treats and belly rubs.

“He has completely adapted to life with two legs.”
