A Bionic Dog Exists: This Dog Has Four Prosthetic Legs

At just five weeks old, Naki'o lost all four of his paws in freezing water. Now, amazingly, he's become bionic. He's the first dog to be outfitted with four prosthetic legs.

Because of the frostbite, Naki'o's paws were rendered into rounded stubs. To move he had to crawl around the veterinary clinic. Christie Tomlinson, bless her heart, a veterinary technician, organized a fundraiser to outfit Naki'o with prosthetics for his two back legs. But when Orthopets saw Naki'o enjoy his new legs so much, they gave him the front pair for free. Now Naki'o can run and jump and bounce like other dogs. [Incredible Features via DVICE]

That's it. If they can let a dog without any paws walk, I want my my arms to be replaced with robotic-prosthetic crab claws.
