This Siberian Husky lost all four feet in a horrific act. But what this vet did to help him made me cry.
Da Hei is a 7-year-old Siberian Husky living in China. He arrived in the office of Dr. Liu after being picked up by two men and ran away. To his horror, Dr. Liu that Da Hai intentionally ripped off his limbs.
Dr. Liu decided to do what he could to help the poor dog. “He’s a survivor. It took him only 19 days to recover,” Liu said of Da Hei. Dr. Liu did not want Da Hei to simply survive, so he approached a prosthetic factory in Beijing and asked if they would help. They worked together to create the Husky 4 artificial limbs.
Thanks to Dr. Liu’s care, Da Hei is walking again and has a permanent home with the vet.
“It wasn’t an easy process for Da Hei. I know for him sometimes walking was painful because the prosthetics weren’t adjusted right. But he was really brave. I kind of admire him,” Dr. Liu’s assistant Mr. Zhu said.
It took 8 months of hard work, but the prosthetics now fit. Da Hei may be the first dog in China to receive artificial limbs. But that doesn’t matter to Da Hei, who is happy to walk and get outside to play with other dogs.
