ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO (KPLR)- Meet Tres, an almost 2-year old Bull Terrier Mix. His name is Tres because because he only uses three legs to walk. Tres was born with a deformity in one of his front legs, but it doesn’t slow him down!

The energetic dog wanted to go on longer walks, but couldn’t until he recently received a very special gift: a wheelchair.

Tres is looking for a forever home. He is being cared for by Five Acres Animal Shelter, a no-kill animal shelter in St. Charles County, Missouri.
