The dog’s owner, Nick Johnson, took to Twitter on Tuesday to share the dog’s unfortunate-yet-uplifting situation. “My dog’s back legs were paralyzed last month, but I don’t think he knows yet,” Johnson wrote, “so don’t tell him.”
It looks like this pup is living his best life.

In the video on Twitter, the dog chases to fetch a football his owner throws as two legs drag behind him. The viral tweet has garnered close to 500,000 likes and more than 5 million views as of Wednesday morning. Johnson then shared the Instagram account for the Frenchie, who is named Cudi. You can follow along with his adventures and escapades on the LilBuddyCudi page.
Some people chimed in to share their own dogs that are injured or have disabilities, and the result is the most heartfelt thread you’ll see on social media all day.

I just brought my baby home from IVDD surgery today, we caught it quickly enough that the damage isn’t permanent but he’s mostly paralyzed from his rib cage back & needs a lot of physical therapy to get back to normal. He still barks at the neighbors pit bull. 😂 pic.twitter.com/Beu3TSgSr2— Claire Bear 🐼🏳️🌈 (@ClaireBearx3) June 18, 2019
