Amputee man adopts amputee dog
An amputee dog has been adopted in the California bay area by an amputee man, allowing man and dog to put their best foot forward. Once a stray, she has a new owner, with whom she has a lot in common. Bob Padilla lost his own leg to diabetes and his wife Bonnie recently lost their dog as well. The Santa Clara couple found out about Minmi, whose leg was amputated after a car accident, on the news. An anonymous donor who paid for Minmi’s amputation wanted an amputee to adopt her. Now the two amputees are inseparable, linked by their own losses. Though Padilla doesn’t see it that way.
