Lucas the Penguin is now waddling with more confidence.

The San Diego Zoo resident had been dealing with an infection called bumblefoot, which causes swelling and lesions.

As a result, no other penguins wanted to socialize with Lucas.

A company called Thera-Paw made a mold of Lucas' foot to create an orthopedic boot that made walking easier.

Zookeepers report that the four-year-old penguin is now socializing and has a girlfriend.
