After his paw was amputated due to a tumor, Sunny the Golden Retriever has had to wear a prosthetic paw that was constantly breaking.

No longer though, as the dog’s owner stepped in to create a custom prosthetic out of a retired tennis shoe.

With a bit of duct tape and an old Nike Zoom Vapor9, dog owner Don Chernoff created a stand-in paw for Sunny that works much better. Chernoff posted a video to YouTube of his furry friend walking and playing the snow with his new paw equipped.

"Now Sunny is a Nike dog!" Don wrote on YouTube. "Roger Federer would be proud.”

With the new prosthetic, Sunny is able to move around like any other canine. Check out the video below to see it in action.
