Meet The World’s First Prosthetic Pooch

DENVER (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Every dog has its day, but only one has two prosthetic legs.

Her name is Triumph, and she’s a Siberian Husky who was found two years ago on the side of a road with both of her hind legs amputated.

However, Triumph now has a new leg on life thanks to Denver- based veterinarian Dr. Robert Taylor who inserted two prosthetic limbs into the pooch.

The dog took to the new legs like a champ and was even walking just a day after the surgery.

Now, the Husky version of Heather Mills is able to do everything any other dog can do – except have puppies, but that’s because she was already fixed before the surgery.

Taylor is so happy with the results that he has six more dogs lined up for similar surgeries as well as a panda.
