With the help of four new prosthetic paws, this sweet pooch is finally able to run and play again, after losing his paws as a puppy. Naki’o lost his paws to frostbite when he was abandoned by his owners and got caught in an icy puddle in the family’s foreclosed basement. Fortunately, Naki’o (along with his brothers and sisters) was taken to an animal rescue center, where he was adopted by veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson. Tomlinson organized a fundraiser to raise enough money for Naki’o's two hind leg prosthetics. He did so well with the procedure that Orthopets decided to pay for the other two prosthetics and to complete the process free of charge. Check out Naki’o in action:
