Puppy With a Missing Paw Finds a Loving Home With a Little Girl Whose Feet Were Amputated After Birth

Puppy and Girl

When Greenville, South Carolina-based breeder Kate Riddle learned that one of her white German Shepherd puppies was born without a foot, she adorably named him Lt. Dan after the Forrest Gump character and sought to find the perfect home for him. Riddle turned to Shriner’s Hospital for Children and found a little girl named Sapphyre Johnson whose feet had been amputated shortly after birth. In an interview with Greenville Online, Johnson’s child life specialist Elaine Hardin spoke about the first time the little girl saw the puppy.

The first time I showed her a picture of the dog, she looked at it for a moment, and she said, ‘That’s my puppy. He’s just like me.’ …He’s a special dog and he’s going to a special child. …In the future, I could see Sapphy at her first show-and-tell in school and she could bring in her dog and explain about her dog and herself. Everybody loves dogs and they’ll want to know about her dog that’s special like her.

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Joker on April 24th, director David Ayers posted the first official photo of an incredibly sinister looking Jared Leto just as he will appear as the malevolent character in the upcoming film Suicide Squad.

According to EW, Leto had traded his signature long locks for a short green do just a few weeks ago.

On Thursday the actor revealed via a Snapchat that he is currently rocking short, green hair. The shade of green is pretty close to The Joker’s hair in the original comic books, and though we didn’t see him in full makeup, we do get a pout of red lipstick.

A Slow-Motion Video of a Pyrotechnic Seat Belt Pretensioner Activating at 28,000 Frames Per Second

In the latest video by The Slow Mo Guys, hosts Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy record a pyrotechnic seat belt pretensioner explosively activating in slow-motion footage recorded at 28,000 frames per second. If you’re unaware: A seat belt pretensioner holds a passenger in their seat during a car accident by rapidly tightening the belt. The pretensioner keeps the passenger in an optimal position for airbag operation and also prevents “submarining,” a dangerous condition in which the passengers slips underneath the lap belt in an accident.
