Two-legged puppy found in dumpster gets new prosthetic limbs

NEWS STAFF | posted Friday, Feb 10th, 2017

A two-legged puppy found in a Toronto dumpster late last month took its first steps with new prosthetic limbs on Thursday.

The Great Pyrenees cross, which was born without front legs, was found in a garbage bag in a dumpster behind a building.

The Oakville-based Dog Rescuers Inc. took the puppy in and named it Cupid.

The eight-week-old pup has to use “training skis” — which the Dog Rescuers calls the Canadian version of training wheels — to develop its back legs and core muscles and to learn how to move its legs forward.

The prosthetics were made by the Toronto-based company PawsAbility.
