An adorable fluffy puppy was found stuck in a garbage bag in a Toronto dumpster. He was only 7 weeks old, born without front limbs and dumped like garbage to die in the cold weather.
Now, not only has Cupid stolen the hearts of his Facebook fans, but he’s also been fitted with new prosthetic legs.
Cupid was named for his small, heart-shaped nose and cute personality by his dedicated guardians of The Dog Rescuers, Inc., a non-profit group based in Oakville, Ontario. Under their care, he grew and flourished.His vet believes that Cupid is a Great Pyrenees mix and that his disability is the result of a genetic condition, not abuse.
His custom-made prosthetic forelimbs were created and donated by Toronto-based Pawsability. A tiny pair of skis are attached to Cupids’ new legs to help him build muscles in his back legs and core, as well as practice walking on all fours. They also come in mighty handy during the snowy Canadian winter.
According to The Dog Rescuers’ Facebook page, Cupid is doing great on his new legs and will be up for adoption soon.
And now Cupid has become so big and is thriving in a home with a family that loves him!!!
