A two-legged Treeing Walker Coonhound from Ohio is a finalist to be the next Cadbury bunny.

The little dog, named Lieutenant Dan, has been walking with only his front two legs for most of his life. His rear legs were removed shortly after birth.

But that doesn’t stop Lieutenant Dan, named after the “Forrest Gump” character who lost his legs in a Vietnam ambush.

“I was born a little different, but that doesn’t stop me! I know how to live life to the fullest!”

Lieutenant Dan was chosen as one of 10 finalists competing for a national commercial spot for Cadbury.

Cadbury, one of the nation’s top Easter brands, issued a casting call for all pets, each vying for the opportunity to be in this year’s iconic Cadbury Clucking Bunny Easter commercial.

Thousands of household pets from across the nation applied. But only a few were chosen as finalists.

“The Cadbury Clucking Bunny commercial has been a perennial Easter favorite for over 30 years. After last year’s newest edition, featuring Henri the bulldog, and the overwhelming positive feedback we’ve received, we decided to bring back the bunny tryouts.”

This year, fans will have the chance to cast their vote to help select the newest and cutest commercial sensation.

Not only will the lucky winner grace screens across America as the new star of the iconic Cadbury Clucking Bunny commercial, but they will also receive a $5,000 cash prize.
