The Bionic Dog



Sad tale:

Weakened by malnourishment after being abandoned as a pup by a Nebraskan family fleeing their foreclosed home, Naki’o stepped into an icy puddle in the basement and got his paws stuck in freezing water. Despite being rescued, he eventually lost the lower parts of all four limbs to frostbite.

Happy ending:

Since then, his new owner has had him fitted with four prosthetic paws in a pioneering procedure by Martin Kaufmann of  Orthopets, a company specializing in orthotic and prosthetic devices for animals.
