We just rescued/adopted Stella less than a week ago from the Anti-Cruelty Society. She was brought up from Hattisburg, Mississippi with no information about what happened to her.  They estimated her age to be about 1 year old and her amputation happened about 4-5 weeks ago. It's crazy to me that there isn't any information on why they did the amputation.

Hi Stella's Mom, welcome! Thanks for registering as a member, your future posts won't need approval.

You are wonderful for rescuing this sweet puppy, she's adorable. Got more pics? We'd love to see them! Here's a post about adding images to the Forums, let me know if you'd like help.

We hear lots of stories like Stellas, there nobody really knows what caused the amp. Usually it's better not to know, sometimes the stories are horrific. Our own Wyatt Ray is a good example, he lost his leg because he was tied up in someone's yard. Ugh.

How is she doing now? Is the getting around well? Do check out our Tripawd Gear blog health and exercise tips, and our e-book, Loving Life On Three Legs , to find out the best ways to keep her healthy and strong, and to avoid future injuries of that precious front leg. Oh and be sure to apply for our Tripawds Foundation Rescue Reimbursement Fund too! You may be eligible for reimbursement of up to $100 of the adoption fee.

Hi Jerry!  Thanks for the welcome.  She is such a sweetie and wants nothing more than to play with her new big sister, Rosie. Rosie is a 5 and 1/2 year old Golden Retriever who is mildly annoyed that she hasn't gone away, yet.  I'm hopeful that they will bond soon. In fact, just tonight, Stella joined Rosie on her Rosie's bed and both stayed put. 

Stella is doing great.  She doesn't seem to mind her situation. She is handling stairs like a champ, too. We've ordered a rug type thing to put on the stairs to our backyard so when our Chicago winter comes, we feel a little more prepared. Thanks for sharing about the Reimbursement Fund. I'll definitely check that out.

Here are some pictures of her.

Awwww. I can tell they're going to be BFFs in no time at all. What a lucky girl. That pic of them snoozing in front of the fireplace is priceless. And she's good with cats too? WOW! You all scored.

Would love to see the carpet thingy you are laying down, I'm sure it will help others who are getting ready for the white stuff.

Congrats and thanks again, we're hoppy to have you join the community!

Hello and welcome.  You are wonderful for opening your home to Stella- she is going to bring such joy to your pack!

Rosie is a 5 and 1/2 year old Golden Retriever who is mildly annoyed that she hasn't gone away, yet.

This reminded me of the first morning after I adopted quad pug Obie.  My older pug Tani woke up with a smile on her little mug, until she saw that other pug was still with us, she was soooo disappointed!

It's great that they are on the same bed already, even if just for a little bit. 

My current Tripawd Elly came to me when she was 10 months old, she lost her rear leg after being hit by a car when she was 7 months old.  Elly, a pug mix, can do pretty much everything a dog her size and age can do- she is almost 3 years old now.  Elly, however, is not at all good with cats!
