"Brutus is an amazing case of a beautiful dog who was dealt a short hand,” said Martin Kauffman, founder of OrthoPets, a company which manufactures prosthetic limbs for approximately 250 pets around the world annually.

Laura Aquilina, Brutus' foster mom, is extremely proud of the incredible strides the dog is making -- literally. And we think she's pretty special too since she took him in knowing most people would consider him unadoptable due to his injuries. His new owner is determined to do everything it takes to improve the quality of the young dog's life.
