From the Daily What:

Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: Meet Naki’o: The first dog to be fitted “with a complete set of bionic legs.”
Naki’o tragic life — his owners abandoned him as a puppy when their Nebraska home was foreclosed, and he lost his paws to frostbite after getting stuck in an icy puddle — took a turn for the best when he was adopted by veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson, who raised funds necessary to purchase prosthetics for Naki’o's hind legs.
Orthopets, the company that designed and fitted the dog’s new limbs, decided to provide Naki’o with front paws free of charge after seeing how enthusiastically he took to the prosthetics.
“Naki’o can now not only chase after a ball with other dogs,” Tomlinson is quoted as saying, “but he can beat them to the catch!”
