Save this one for some time you can be alone, unless you don’t mind openly weeping like a child. Meet Hoppa, the little dog born without front legs; his human companion, Avi Kuzi of the Society for the Protection of Animals in Israel who cared for him despite a veterinarian’s advice to put Hoppa down; and art student Nir Shalom of Jerusalem, who has built “the Mercedes of dog-protheses” for little Hoppa to use, restricting his movement no more. In fact, this prosthesis is a prototype, which Shalom wants to offer in multiple sizes at an affordable cost for other needy dogs and their human pals.
