An adorable puppy who was born with badly deformed legs may be able to walk again after having them pinned in two-and-a-half hour operation.
Wanda the Cocker Spaniel was born with front legs so badly deformed that vets thought the bone damage was irreparable and wanted to put her down.
But Wanda was taken in by volunteers Kerri Eilertsen-Feeney and Eileen Mellis and immediately underwent surgery where a specialist vet rotated the ulna bones by 180 degrees and fixed them into place with pins.
Wanda had such badly deformed front legs that vets thought the bone damage was irreparable.
