Paralyzed Bulldog Gets Prosthetic Legs

This story is a couple of years old, but it’s so cute it’s worth sharing. Spencer’s back legs are paralyzed. You may wonder how prosthetic legs help a paralyzed dog, and it doesn’t appear that they amputated his legs. I believe (and I may be wrong) that the new legs are fitted over his existing legs, and act as a brace so that he can use his upper thigh muscles to control his lower leg movement. And the shoes she gave him are fabulous! (via Metafilter)
