He’s just as energetic as any other pup. He always wants to play!
And he has so much love to give.
But his deformed legs were holding him back…
So little Bonsai’s humans decided that it’d be best to amputate his back legs.
Unfortunately, there was one very scary moment during the procedure. The doctors were afraid he wasn’t getting enough oxygen.
Since his chest cavity is tiny, it was difficult for doctors to determine how to position the brave pup during surgery.
The vet decided to complete the operation upside down.
Bonsai then began an intensive round of muscle therapy and rehabilitation.
