Puppy found 'discarded like garbage' and missing two legs gets new lease on life

Last month, the Dog Rescuers Inc. received a call about a puppy in distress.

It was January in Toronto, and it was cold. When the rescuers arrived, they found a puppy tied in a bag, “discarded like garbage” behind a building. The pup also had a birth defect, and was missing his two front legs. His loving personality won over the rescuers, who named him Cupid.

It wasn’t long before Toronto company PawsAbility stepped in to help Cupid. He was fitted for new front legs, and his new life ahead of him.

Within weeks, the little puppy was healthier, playful, and doing well in the hands of a foster family.

And this week, Cupid had his big day.

Cupid’s new legs arrived, and he began using them. He took his first steps, in what the Dog Rescuers are calling “training wheels.” He’s being trained for the next while to use his muscles, and he just keeps getting more and more adorable.

While he’s still weeks from adoption, Cupid survived thanks to Oakville-based Dog Rescuers Inc. The agency helps rescue puppies like Cupid, who are kept in foster homes until adoption.

We can’t wait to see what’s next for little Cupid.
