  1. Ryan hopes prosthetic paws will put Sandy on all fours

    A man in Carlisle is hoping to design some prosthetic paws for an injured dog he rescued in Egypt.

    Ryan Casson brought two-year old Sandy to Carlisle from Cairo, where it's thought she was hit by a train.

    Ryan hopes he can create the new pair of back paws on a 3-D printer, so Sandy can walk on harder surfaces

    Quote Message: That would just enable her to walk on concrete, rather than me carrying her to the car and then carrying her to grass, ultimately the goal would be to get her up a Cumbrian fell, but that's probably quite unrealistic." from Ryan Casson
