A famous pit bull that passed away from a rare form of cancer still lives on less than a year after his death.

Wallace the Pit Bull became known after becoming the first of his breed to win a national flying disc championship, and soon after, he became a household name when a book was written about him.

In summer 2012, Wallace was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, and unfortunately, his vet gave him two to three months to live. Miraculously, seven months after his initial diagnosis, Wallace celebrated his 11th birthday, and the day was captured in a touching viral video.

Sadly, Wallace died in August 2013, a year after his diagnosis, but to this day, his spirit and legacy still lives on.
