Derby, a husky born with deformed front paws, was going to be euthanized or “put down” before Peace and Paws, a dog rescue group in Hillsborough, New Hampshire, took him in. Derby’s life changed majorly after a lady named Tara Anderson fostered him.
Tara happened to be the director at 3D Systems, a US-based company that specializes in 3D design-to-manufacturing solutions. Her team developed customized prosthetics that enabled Derby to not just walk, but outrun humans as well. In August, Derby was adopted by the Portanova family who take care of him ever since.
