Brutus the Rottweiler walks again on artificial legs

Brutus, a young Rottweiler got his paws amputated, as he was unfortunately suffering from frostbite on them.

To live a life as a quadruple amputee dog isn't easy at all. Keeping in mind the difficulties, his family started a fundraising campaign.

They raised money to get new 3D printed legs for Brutus from OrthoPets, Denver-based organization.

Now Brutus, the 2-year-old dog, is all fine and can run as if he was born to do.

The campaign that raised the funds was named ‘Better Paws for Brutus’. It has chronicled this miraculous journey on social media for the ones who want to know about this lucky dog.

A series of videos and photos revealed that Brutus had lost some of his paws to the frostbite and a botched amputation by his breeder.

With the help of the raised funds for ‘better paws’, the troubled areas were removed professionally and were used to create the new legs.

The new paws for Brutus have come from OrthoPets. It uses the same technology that is used to make human prosthetics.

Brutus’s current physical therapist, Sasha Foster told Colorado's NBC 9News, “When you improve the quality of life for a dog, you improve the quality life for the entire family”.

Presently, Brutus is working on getting used to his new, better paws and with these 3D printed legs he will hopefully have a happier life ahead.
