LONDON: A spaniel born with six legs that was found abandoned in an England supermarket parking lot is now like other dogs after having her extra limbs surgically removed.
Ariel, who was named for The Little Mermaid character because the additional appendage with two paws on the end looked like a flipper, ran through the grass Saturday (Jan 20) as she adjusted to life on four legs.
“She is doing brilliantly,” said Vicki Black, director of the Langford Vets Small Animal Referral Hospital, where she was operated on Thursday.
The dog, who had multiple birth defects, was found in the centre of Pembroke, Wales, in September. Greenacres Rescue took her in and raised funds for her surgery.
