Little Tennessee Sapphyre Johnson may lose her feet, but that doesn't stop her from sharing her love. I adopted a puppy without a front paw, and now the two of them are inseparable.
Sapphyre Johnson is an adorable little girl with special challenges. She was born with a rare condition that left her without a few toes, and she had to have surgery to remove her feet when she was a baby.
But that doesn't stop Sapphire. She has two artificial feet, and she even knows how to put them on by herself. What could be better than a brave little fighter like this? Why a puppy with one leg, of course?
“The first time I showed her a picture of the dog, I looked at it for a moment and said, 'He's a puppy. He's gay, said Eileen Harden, child life specialist at Schriner. "It's a special dog and it goes to a special kid."
With White Shepherd Lieutenant Dan by his side, Sapphyre feels loved and understood. She and her dog are inseparable, and when they get older, they will undoubtedly dominate the world together.
