Music psyches us up, so it’s easy to imagine that it works that way for dogs, too.

Take Holly the puppy, who walks, runs and ultimately climbs a flight of stairs to the “Rocky” theme in a video posted to the Adopt an Angel YouTube channel. At 5 weeks old, she arrived at Pender Animal Control in Burgaw, North Carolina, with her mother — and a big leg injury for a puppy.

The shelter, lacking emergency funds, reached out to Adopt An Angel in New Hanover County, North Carolina. A volunteer there rushed Holly to a vet, where an X-ray showed her leg had been crushed at the top, the bottom and the knee. A vet amputated it that night, and a worker from the office took Holly home to foster her.

Several weeks later, Holly really had the hang of tripawd walking. Better still, she has a list of people eager to give her a new home. Holly’s mom is still up for adoption and you can help her and fellow pups at the Adopt An Angel site.
