Shortly before Valentine’s Day, a very special two-legged puppy finally felt what it was like to be loved.
Cupid, a Great Pyranees mix born without his two front legs, was estimated to be a mere 7 weeks old when he was found in late January.
The pup was discovered in a dumpster in Toronto — sealed up in a trash bag and literally thrown away.
The Dog Rescuers Inc. told Toronto’s CityNews:
“This little guy is an absolute love with the most adorable personality and a heart-shaped nose. The angels who facilitated him coming into our care named him Cupid.”
Cupid is using “training skis” — the Canadian version of training wheels — to get used to his prosthetic limbs. They will help him develop stronger muscles in his core and back legs to aid the walking process.
We can see why those skis come in handy in Canada!
Though he had a rough start to life and almost didn’t make it, it’s clear that Cupid is thankful for the help he is receiving. He’s all smiles now!
Cupid will be available for adoption once he learns to use his prosthetics a little better.
