(Scroll down for video) A two-legged dog was overjoyed after being taken to the beach for the first time, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.

On the video, the dog can bee seen running through the sandy beach with a big smile.

The dog, named Duncan Lou Who, was recorded with a GoPro camera operated by Panda Paws Rescue personnel of Vancouver, Washington. Duncan Lou Who was born with deformed back legs and they had to be amputated.

While the dog has a wheelchair, it prefers to jump around on its two front legs. Panda Paws Rescue said that at the time of the amputation many have said that the dog should be killed. However, this video showed that they were wrong.

Last December, a clever dog was seen on video correctly identifying numerous toys after being trained by several scientists, according to video uploaded to the Internet. It is more than just a smart dog, as Chaser knows the names of over 1,000 items, according to the scientists who have trained the dog.

The scientists said that Chaser knows the names of all his 1,022 toys, and can classify the toys according to their function or form. They said that humans only learn to do this when they are about three years old.

The dog Einstein has been part of a seven-year study in the United States. University academics said that they first taught Chaser the names of more than 800 cloth animals, 116 balls, 26 Frisbees and 100 plastic toys. Then, the dog was taught numerous commands.

Other dogs are also able to learn words and commands, but not at such a high level. In 2004, Rico of Germany, was found to have a vocabulary of about 200 words, while Betsy of Austria, understood 340 words.
