LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - A two-legged dog who defied all the odds has found a forever family. 

You may remember Deuce from our Making A Difference segment. The pup has two legs both on the right side of his body. He was found badly injured in a ditch in April and both of his legs on his left side were broken and badly infected.

"Despite very aggressive medical treatment there was nothing we could do," said Jean Gibowski, the founder of Camp Jean Dog Rescue. 

Gibowski said that any other solution than euthanasia didn't seem possible at the time, but after taking the dog home for a couple of days, she noticed that he wasn't using the two injured legs, so she and the vets at Brighton Animal Clinic opted to amputate both legs. 

He then became something of a celebrity. Gibrowski wanted Deuce to go to someone who volunteered to work with amputees. 

On Friday, his rescuers announced that Deuce has been adopted and will travel to Pennsylvania where he will live with other two-legged dogs. Once there, Deuce will be trained to be a therapy dog and will work with a local children's hospital.
