LOS ANGELES (AP) - A speedy, two-legged male Chihuahua without a tag, microchip or home was picked up in Southern California this week.

Alerted to a report of an injured dog Tuesday night, San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control officers rounded up a 6-year-old Chihuahua in Highland, about 70 miles east of Los Angeles.

The dog was actually uninjured. Unlike most dogs missing two legs, this dog is missing most of his right front and rear left legs. But he runs naturally as if he’s been running that way his whole life.

County communications officer C.L. Lopez says it is likely a birth defect.

If the owner doesn’t show up by Sunday, the dog will be put up for adoption.
