World's First Dog with a Bionic Legs

You might heard about the cat named Oscar with a bionic leg, and now the first dog with a bionic leg is here. Naki'o was barely 5 weeks old when he and his brothers and sisters were abandoned by a family moving out of Nebraska. Having barely survived the winter, all four of the dog's paws were deformed into rounded stumps after being stuck in an icy puddle.

Someone found the red heeler pups and took them to an animal rescue center. Nakio’s paws were slayed by frostbite and veterinarians had to amputate. He was left with four stumps. When they healed, he was able to walk around on them for a while, but as he grew it was too much, and he could only crawl around on his belly.

"Even though he was hobbling, he was still just trying to enjoy life," said Martin Kaufmann, the founder of OrthoPets, who outfitted Naki'o with his new paws."Naki'o's personality was great." It was that spirit that captivated his owner, a veterinary technician, to adopt him form a shelter and raise money for him to get two prosthetics.

Veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson adopted him, and raised funds to get him fitted with two prosthetic rear legs. They worked out so well that OrthoPets decided to give him two more limbs free of charge.

At first walking on all four prosthetics was challenging, but Naki’o adapted quickly, learning how to use the devices as though they were his natural legs. After just a few days he was running and bounding. The prosthetics are built to mimic the muscle and bone of dog limbs, allowing them to do everything a normal dog would do.

Now, Naki'o is able to run, jump and play just like other dogs, thanks to the second chance his new set of legs have given him.
