When the unthinkable happened, the playful dog was living the good life with his huɱaпs and another doggie sister, Izzy.
When a patrolling officer saw Fifty, he became alarmed and shot him in both of his right limbs. This was a classic case of Pit Bull discrimination, as Fifty was nothing but a gentle and kind dog.
However, this tragic incident changed his life forever, and the poor dog had both of his right legs amputated as a result of gunshot wounds.
Fifty was just learning to balance on his two remaining legs when his life was turned upside down once more.
