Three Legged Dogs

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I think many people look at the loss of a limb as a tragedy.  I know that when we found out Toto had to have his leg amputated, it sounded like a horrible idea.  When we tell people Toto had to have his leg amputated, they often cringe.  But, at this time, I can honestly say that hemagiosarcoma is horrible…  losing his leg was not a big deal. 

In fact, watching Toto, and all of your dogs on the Tripawd site, I have grown very fond of three legged dogs.  They are amazing… and special.  I am getting the itch to adopt another three legged dog.  I can’t (shouldn’t) rescue anymore animals at this time.  I kind of have my hands full (husband, two kids, three dogs, fat cat).  But still, I get the itch about once a week (or anytime I go by the adoption center at petsmart or see a post for a dog that needs a home).  So now I have a soft spot in my heart for another animal…  the three legged dog.  You gotta love them.

    There is something very wonderful about a three legged dog!! Most days we don’t even notice Peyton is missing his leg! They adapt so much better than humans.

    I agree! You forget really quickly that they are “different.” 🙂
