Naki'o the Bionic Dog Has 4 Paw ProstheticsDevan McGuinness
Meet Naki’o the Bionic Dog who has been making headlines around the world.
This beautiful mix-breed dog was not given the best start to life when we was found abandoned in a foreclosed house in Nebraska. He was discovered in a frozen puddle in the cellar and was brought to an animal shelter.
Due to frostbite, Naki’o lost all four paws and the tip of his tail. As you could imagine, learning to walk again was a bit of a struggle.
Since that day, Naki’o was adopted into a new family who cares for him. On top of that, thanks to the generosity of a Denver company called ‘Orthopets’ which specializes in pet prosthetics, Naki’o the Bionic Dog has been fitted with two more prosthetics for his front legs.
He’s full of life, happy as can be and even though he’s got 4 prosthetic paws, he can run with the best of them! Check out this news story that features Naki’o and I have a feeling you’ll fall in love with him as quickly as I have.
