Read more and watch Naki’o after the jump.Naki’o was abandoned as a puppy when his owners left their foreclosed home. During the Nebraskan winter, he stepped into an icy puddle in the home’s basement and got all four of his paws trapped in the freezing water. With severe frostbite, Naki’0 and the rest of his litter were transported to an animal rescue center.
Veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson adopted Naki’o, and organized a fundraiser to pay for his two back legs to be fitted with the prosthetics. He came through the procedure so well that Orthopets decided to donate the remaining two prosthetic legs (paws).
So your asking yourself , how well does Naki’o get around with the new legs? Check out the video and see for yourself.
