dog w/prosthetic leg

did anyone see this on cnn this morning. a dog had a missing front left leg(i think)and rec'd a prosthetic. it was basically a straight crutch-like limb that extended from the dog's shoulder. he/she was hobbling around with that thing just hanging there. i've seen dogs without a leg get around as well as dogs with all four. not sure why someone felt the need to do this.

Me too. Some kind of help only makes sense if more than one leg is missing IMO.

There are great devices for dogs like this, I don't know the English word for it.

I have no idea!
It looks like a little wagon on two, um, tyres, if that description makes any sense. I'm lost for words!

Yes, he does, but he won't last long like this. His organism isn't made to this kind of walking.

It's basically referred to as a wheelchair for dogs.

A cart of sorts! Friends of mine have one for their Dachsund ~ he lost feeling in his back legs, so he's in the cart and gets around beautifully now
