Boy With Prosthetic Leg Finds Best Friend In Puppy Born Without A Paw
May 16, 2021
Marvel was the only puppy from her litter born without a front right paw. But she was destined to belong to a home that needed her most.
Paxton Willams and Marvel
The golden retriever puppy born without a paw has found her forever home with the Minnesota family of 7-year-old Paxton Williams, who had to have his right leg amputated three years ago.
"When she was born, we knew right away she had a special purpose," breeder Barb Felt said. "We wanted her to go in a home with someone who had a limb difference."
Paxton was born premature, a complication that caused him to develop an infection in his right leg. Three years ago, Paxton's parents made the difficult decision to have his right leg amputated.
"It gives him the opportunity to tell the kids, 'Oh, she's missing a paw, she's like me,'" Paxton's mom explained. "And like it gives him that voice, too, to advocate for himself."
