Girl Without Feet Finds Perfect Patch: Puppy Missing a Paw
A Tennessee toddler with prosthetic legs has found a friend in a puppy who was born missing a paw. Three-year-old Sapphyre Johnson, a patient at the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Greenville, South Carolina, got to take the dog home after meeting him this week. Sapphyre, whose family lives in Greeneville, Tennessee, was born with only two fingers on each hand and one toe on each foot due to a congenital condition. Doctors decided to amputate her feet as a baby so that she would eventually be able to walk with prosthetics.
