WATCH: Duck with disability takes its first steps

Merlin is a duck born with a defect on the left leg that could have prevented him from walking forever. Fortunately it was adopted by a shelter for animals in New Jersey, which then proceeded to contact a company that deals with making products to facilitate the mobility of dogs and cats with motor problems. 

The engineers had to make changes in order to adapt the wheelchair to the appearance of Merlin but in the end they managed to find the right compromise and the animal began to take its first steps. Go Merlin!
