This is such a sweet story!

A three-year-old girl who was born without fingers or feet received a very special surprise Tuesday afternoon — a puppy who's just like her!

Sapphyre Johnson has been a patient at the Shriner's Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina since she was only three months old due to her birth defect.

The little girl's father saw the paw-less puppy as a great opportunity and companion for his daughter.

Matthew Johnson said:

"A lot of kids don't see other children or animals that have issues like they have. This was a really nice thing and a really good thing for Sapphyre."

This whole situation happened when local breeder Karen Riddle decided to contact the hospital to ask if anyone would want a white German Shepard puppy who was born with only three paws.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooOops!Business BlitzCute Kidz

Panera Bread apologizes for asking mom and child with squeaky shoes to leave

It sounds like Panera Bread has some serious explaining to do!

Savannah, Georgia natives Catherine and Stephen Duke were regulars at the restaurant and were grabbing a bite with their two-year-old toddler Emma, when someone complained about her squeaky shoes!

Any employee approached the family and asked her to remove the shoes, but we're guessing they didn't know that the two-year old suffered a disability that made it difficult to walk, so a doctor prescribed her orthopedics that are SUPPOSED to squeak to let her know she's walking correctly.
