The dog Naki and his siblings were saved as puppies from a basement in Nebraska. It was so bitterly cold there that the poor animal's paws and part of its tail were frozen. Naki was therefore unable to walk and could only crawl.
Special prostheses as a paw replacement
Luckily, Naki came under the care of the dedicated veterinarian assistant Christie Pace. Together with a veterinary clinic, she started developing prostheses. Since the first attempts at walking with special prostheses were successful, the idea was pursued until the four prostheses were technically mature.
