Warning: Your Head May Explode From Cuteness


From The Daily Mail comes a story (with pictures!) of Hope, a very tiny and adorable dog born without her front legs. An orthotist made a mold of her torso and fitted it with two prosthetic wheeled limbs. When she grows, she will need a new prosthesis made. The story has some great photos of Hope, her custom prosthetic, and the molding process. As I said, you have been warned that your head may explode from adorable puppy pics. Quoth the reporter, "This tiny puppy may have been born without front legs but there's no way that is holding her back."

Image: Small fluffy white puppy missing her front limbs. She has a brace on the front part of her torso which is attached to two bent plastic limbs with wheels on the ends.

It's cute and disturbing at the same time. I learned something though...never knew that there were prostheses for dogs.

She looks like my mom's Maltese. He has athritis and I think it hurts me more than him.
