Kapone the rescue Pit Bull was born with four legs, just like a normal pup, but then things took a turn for the worse.
When he was two years old, he began to limp when he walked. The vet said it might be cancer, in which case the vet said Kapone should be put down. But his family didn’t listen, and they refused to give up on this sweet boy.
“He is the rock that holds our family together,” said Jessica Pugh, Kapone’s mom. “He is my sanity.”
Eventually, Kapone needed to have his leg amputated. It took him a while to realize he didn’t have a leg anymore. But once he did, he acclimated to it very quickly. Having three legs has not slowed Kapone down one bit!
If that wasn’t enough of a scare, Kapone’s family has recently learned that he might have terminal cancer. If he winds up losing another leg, he will need a wheelchair to get around. But his family will continue to fight for him, and won’t ever give up.
Kapone may be a dog, but he has taught his family so much.
