Every day around the world, a good human gives a three-legged dog or cat a chance at a great life. For example there’s Merlin, a fortunate rescue dog from Turkey. He was recently adopted by the O’Brien pack from Ontario, Canada. Kelly O’Brien shared his magical story with us for today’s #TripawdTuesday spotlight:
“He is the busiest little Golden Retriever — named Merlin. I rescued him from Turkey, through Golden Rescue.
He is so fast on 3 legs.. Unbelievable!
He is just over a year old.. Blind in his right eye with low muscle function in his right rear leg due to hip surgery. His front right leg was amputated due to nerve damage from being hit by 2 cars. The damage was all to his right side.
Thus, his name Merlin..the little wizard that magically has survived.”
