Dog runs for first time thanks to 3D printed prosthetics

A dog with deformed legs is getting a second chance at life thanks to 3D printed prosthetic legs.

Derby was born without front legs and almost euthanized until a foster owner, Tara Anderson, came to the rescue.

Anderson not only took Derby in, but helped design his new legs at the 3D printing company where she works. 3D printing technology allows her to easily change the design and re-print the prosthetics. 

So far, Anderson has made four versions of the prosthetic legs, or what Derby's owner refers to as his “shoes.” The most current pair is a wheels and spokes device that easily Velcro on and off.

“Well at first he really does not want you to put them on … Once he has them on he's just happy as a clam to go out and run around,” Sherry Portanova, Derby's current owner, explained to CNN.

Derby can run for the first time thanks to the prosthetics, which he wears for two to three hours each day.

Colbert Report has star-studded finale

Stephen Colbert is headed to fill David Letterman's shoes as ‘Late Show' host and received an A-list sendoff Thursday in the Colbert Report finale.

Jon Stewart, of course, joined in-song with Patrick Stewart, Bryan Cranston, Katie Couric, Bill Clinton, Kareem Abdul-Jabar, Cyndi Lauper – the list goes on and on. Watch the entire sing-along here or below.
