We recently agreed to rescue a newborn Golden Retriever puppy that had to have his left rear leg amputated at six days of age.  We've owned a couple of rescue dogs in the past, but this will be our first amputee.  We are really excited to give this guy a loving home.  I'm wondering if it's a good idea to give him a companion sibling from the same litter.  The veterinarian that performed the amputation said he's strong and healthy other than being a tripawd now.

Hello and welcome!

Have you decided on a name for your new boy?  I don't think I've heard of a surgery so young.

I've almost always had two dogs at one time- but for the last several years they have all been small.  I like the fact that they have a companion when I'm not home. 

More pictures please!

Also a big fan of a two dog household, although currently I am waiting for the right #2 to come along.   Congrats on your new baby!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.
