Two-Legged Rescue Puppy Will Walk Right Into Your Heart On His New Prosthetic Legs


Life did not get off to a promising start for Cupid. The adorable fluffy puppy was found sealed in a trash bag in a Toronto dumpster this January. He was just 7-weeks-old, born without front limbs, and tossed out like garbage to die in the frigid weather.

Now, not only has Cupid stolen the hearts of his Facebook fans, he has also been fitted with new prosthetic legs!

Look at that face!

Cupid was named for his little heart-shaped nose and sweet personality by his devoted caretakers at The Dog Rescuers, Inc., a non-profit group based in Oakville, Ontario. Under their care he has grown and thrived. His veterinarian believes that Cupid is a Great Pyrenees Mix and that his disability is a result of a genetic condition, not abuse.
