Sunny the 10-year-old Golden Retriever had his left paw amputated due to a tumor. His human, Don Chernoff, got him a standard prosthetic paw, but the pup kept chewing on it! So Don decided to do something about it. He took his old Nike Zoom Vapor 9 tennis shoes and made a prosthetic paw, or a “faux paw,” out of it for Sunny.

This particular style of shoe is the favorite of famous tennis player Roger Federer and can cost upwards of $140.

Don says:

It works much better and now Sunny is a Nike dog! Roger Federer would be proud.

Now Sunny gets around just fine! And it’s all thanks to a little human imagination. “Just Dog It,” Sunny!
