Meet Naki’o, the First Dog With Four Prosthetic Paws [VIDEO]

Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics.
