MOTORING ALONG: The mini-mutt, who’s name appears to be ‘Daffodil’, with the prosthesis attached.

A TINY female dog is able to ‘walk’ once more, after Verdiblanca, a charity association for disabled people based in Almeria City, stepped in to create a special prosthetic harness fitted with four small wheels after the poor pooch lost the majority of her front legs.

In order to create the novel appendage, the dog was wrapped in bandages so that measurements could be taken, with circles drawn in pen around the stumps of her missing limbs, before a cast of the apparatus was constructed by specialists.

The finished prosthesis is made in durable plastic, with two sets of wheels replacing the pup’s legs, and the little tyke had to wait a further two weeks for the contraption to be made, after which she needed several more days to get used to scampering around on it.

A video detailing the process (see below) has gone viral on social media, receiving over 33 million views so far.
