Dog Born With Rare Leg Deformity Tries Her New Prosthetics For First Time — And Starts Running Like the Wind

Dog Born With Rare Leg Deformity Tries Her New Prosthetics For First Time — And Starts Running Like the Wind

A strong pup who made the best of her condition finds a new lease on life after trying on her leg prosthetics for the very first time.

Aside from being the loyalist friends, anyone could have, dogs are also among the most resilient animals on earth, and Halo is a shining example. The Great Pyrenees was born with no front feet and a severely deformed back legs and left to die in a box by a heartless breeder who threw her away like trash. However, the sweet pup was rescued, and ever since, Jamie Wallace-Griner has fallen head over heels in love with the tough little sweetheart. Jamie is also the founder of Safe In Austin Rescue Ranch, located in Texas's great state.

Jamie's farm gives neglected and abused animals of different species a second chance at life in a loving forever home. They also have quite a few animals with special needs. The rescue began after another Great Pyrenees named Angel developed an extraordinary bond with Jamie's autistic son, Jamie.

“Angel touched parts of his heart that I couldn’t even reach as his mother,” Jamie said.

After witnessing this miracle, Jamie became so inspired that she began taking in animals in need. Today, Jamie cares for over 100 creatures and arranges soul-healing visits between them and kids with special needs.

So, it only seemed right that Jamie paid Angel's special gift forward by helping Halo (whose name was obviously inspired by Angel). Unlike Halo's cruel breeder, Jamie did not see a lost cause. And the sweet pup would grow up never believing for a moment that she was any different than any of the other dogs on the ranch.

Eventually, Halo had to have her back leg amputated, and her front two legs were surgically reconstructed. But, she took all of these changes in stride while always maintaining her joyful, happy-go-lucky attitude.

From the first couple of days of Halo's rescue, Jamie just wanted to find a way to make it easier for the pup to walk. And in October 2019, she was delighted when she received a pair of prophetic legs courtesy of OthoPets. However, it was Halo's reaction that brought her to tears.

Not only did the sweep pup stand up, but she also began to run for the first time in her life!

“The plan was just to introduce her to them today. It was never to even attempt walking,” Jamie wrote. “She had different plans. She didn’t just walk….. she ran!”

Best of all, they took a video of Halo's incredible triumph and shared it with the world. The sweet put had always been unstoppable, but now she's really on a roll!

“It’s been an insane roller coaster of challenges and emotions over the last year,” Jamie added. “From the moment I brought this little wounded, 4-week-old, one-legged fluff ball home, I knew she was something special!”

Halo's also proving to be an inspiration to children with special needs teaching them to love and believe in themselves.
