First dog to be fitted with four prosthetics limbs

 So his owner, Christie Pace, started to explore different options for Naki'o:

"I have a soft spot for rescue animals in general. I was looking for something different, unique. I wanted to make more of a difference than a regular dog. I knew I could help him out."

Pace set up a fundraiser to get hind leg prosthetics for Naki'o through OrthoPets, an animal hospital that provides, "biomechanically correct orthotics and prosthetics for animals." After seeing how well the pup did with the initial fittings, OrthoPets decided to outfit Naki'o with prosthetics for his other legs free of charge.
