Hudson was getting a new paw, and even his doctor is a little nervous.
"The challenge is fitting this prosthetic in front of all you people hoping he likes it and doesn't chew it off initially," said Dr. Tom Bowersox, an Amsterdam veterinarian.

Pearl is missing two toes.
Police are still searching for who is behind it.
