A rescue dog whose fore leg was amputated after it was almost torn off in a trap is now running for the first time with a new prosthetic limb.  Three-legged German shepherd Shadow has undergone months of physiotherapy and regular vet visits to get him back running on all fours.<br />
<br />
It comes less than a year after he was on the verge of being put down when he was abandoned by his owners in Spain after being snared in a trap.  Vets at a rescue centre had to amputate his left fore leg as he was found with his foot mutilated and with bones sticking out of his leg.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
