The touching story of a loyal dog and a legless girl will probably make you cry

Sapphyre Johnson, a three-year-old girl from Tennessee, who lost both her feet when she was just one-year-old, has received a heartwarming gift. A nine-week-old puppy named Lt. Dan shares a unique bond with Sapphyre, as he is also missing one of his front paws. Due to her congenital disorder, Sapphyre was born without several toes and fingers, and her feet were amputated so that she could be provided with prosthetics at no cost by the Shriners hospital in Greenville, South Carolina. If it wasn’t for Karen Riddle, Lt. Dan’s previous owner, who recognized him as the perfect companion for someone like Sapphyre, the little dog would have been put down. The puppy’s name is inspired by the character of the same name from the famous movie Forrest Gump.
