Owner’s DIY Nike Prosthetic Paw For His Dog Is Simply Awesome!

Have you seen a limping dog? Sure, dogs can’t talk but this is a sign that something ain’t right. Accidents do happen on animals too. But for this 10-year old golden retriever, his is a different story.


As captioned by the dog owner, Don Chernoff, “Sunny had his paw amputated to remove a tumour. His new prosthetic paw kept breaking under the stress of such a big dog, so I redesigned it to work better using my old Nike Zoom Vapor 9 tennis shoes. It works much better and now Sunny is a Nike dog! Roger Federer would be proud.”

It sure is difficult for Sunny to move after the operation. Luckily, he has been blessed with an understanding and resourceful owner who made a way for him. For his pet, Don may not have second thoughts revamping his old Nike shoe, but for Sunny, this is a big thing.
