2-Legged Survivor Beats The Odds Again – Survives Horrible Car Wreck

Duncan the survivor

A rather famous 2-legged boxer named “Duncan,” (aka Duncan Lou Who) has proven himself, once again, to be a survivor. The dog was born with deformed rear legs which were unusable and had to be amputated.

Despite his physical limitations, Duncan has not only survived but thrived. Recently, Duncan miraculously managed to survive a horrible car accident which happened while his owners, Gary Walters, his fiancee, Amanda Giese, were on their way home from a trip to Yellowstone National Park.

On the trek along U.S. Highway 20, their vehicle struck a bison – the vehicle was destroyed after rolling several times and Duncan was ejected from the SUV.


His owners were desperate to find their beloved dog. Search parties mobilized and scoured the area around the scene of the crash. Amazingly, Duncan was found in a quarry, about 3 miles away from the accident. Somehow, against all odds, he not only survived but was okay.

Shortly after Duncan was found, his grateful owners released a statement:

DUNCAN IS SAFE & back home. Our family is complete. Our family is also extremely, unfathomably fortunate. We will need time to process the last 24 hours, physically heal our wounds & likely a lot more time to psychologically heal from what we just went through. I’m not even sure how to tackle these thoughts, fears, feelings zooming through me as a mom who was certain mid-3rd roll that we were all going to parish. We are spending quality time together, supporting one another. This entire ordeal has been traumatic on many levels. When we are ready, we will share more details surrounding the accident. For now, I can tell you that we have a lot of emotions…”

Duncan continues to inspire and amaze his countless fans.

Duncan’s owners are the founders of Panda Paws Rescue, a non-profit organization which specializes in special needs, major medical and hospice care.
