I found Tripawds a few months ago when my 8 year old dog had his right forelimb amputated due to bone cancer. I recently adopted another tripawd, a 3 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound named Boone. Boone was fostered in TN by a kind family who found him injured by a wild animal and wandering the woods. He needed his left forelimb amputated due to injury. Unfortunately, Boone is way too much for my pup to handle. He is extremely playful and nips at my dog (not aggressively) to instigate play. My poor dog has had enough and I don't want him to have to put up with this every day for what remains of his life and am concerned that the stress of dealing with this is not good for him. If he was younger and healthier Boone would not be a problem for him. The timing just wasn't right.
I am trying to find a good home for Boone, preferably one with people who understand the unique needs of tripawds. Boone was also abused at some point in his life and is very timid and shy with new people. However, once he comes out of his shell he is a sweet goofy hound. Boone needs a good, stable home with patient people who understand his needs (preferably with a fenced in yard - Boone LOVES to run and play outside). I know he will blossom into a great, loyal dog if given the opportunity. Boone is neutered and fully vetted. If you are interested in this pup, please let me know. I am in the Chicago area, but would be willing to drive just about anywhere to find Boone the right home. (He is a beautiful dog, but I am not sure how to include a picture.)
