Name: Amy
Bio: I live in Michigan, have rescued 4 French Bulldogs since 2008, 3 with very little to no problems & now I just rescued little Neuman in July, he was 6 months old. He has to have his left front leg amputated. His previous owners, thought he was limping around due to one of their bigger dogs stepping in his paw. He really had a 4-6 week old fracture & his leg stopped stopped growing. (Really, they never took him to.the vet, EVER 6 months old, limping in pain, grr) He has a a 2 year old Frenchie sister, Stella & thankfully she likes him.

Yes that is him & today its a good thing he is so cute, both my dogs were so naughty. Stella is teaching him bad habits. (My mom laughed & said "just like you did to your brother"lol). The vet said to stay home for 2 weeks with him. That's a long time with basically 2 puppies (Stella just turned 2). I've been dropping not suttle hints to m (More)

  1. Thanks soooo much for bringing us this SPOT ON insightful information! Yeah, we wouldn’t just go google information or rely on facebooger about prosthesis products and fittings for ourselves! This is not a DIY roject! We would go to a respected professional who has all the necessary education to make him an expert!

    With appreciation

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    • You are very welcome Sally! We are grateful when experts like Jeremy help fill our brains with the information we need to give a great life to our animals.

  2. I’m sorry I had you blubbering, Sally! Thank you for reading Wrigley’s story and knowing he can make you smile! His joy was contagious!

  3. Okay, you warned us to get the tissues out. I didn’t. I figured I could handle a tear here and there. Wrong!
    Going to get my tissue box now and, when I can stop blubbering will come back! Goodness knows there are a gazillion things to smike zbout while reading about Wrigley. Just jzve ro srop crying first!
    Be back……

  4. My pyrenean raphael fomes home yoday hes had amputation, i decided before i found the support group, when vet phoned me the scan results while he was still anaesthetised, great to find suppirt group and success stiries, he will be having chemo, my partners dog had chemo for different cancer it didnt save him but there were no discernable side effects u like human chemo. And bloods are constantly monitored, trwatment is dtopped if causing probs

  5. Wow, is she really that good? This is new to me.

  6. I am so glad she is doing this again. I hope everyone can try to take advantage I know I am going to try. If I can’t that day I will make an appointment with her.

  8. My Lab/Golden has osteosarcoma n we had rear leg amputated a week ago.
    I have noticed so many pics tha show the amputation all the way up ……ours still has a partial stump ?
    Just wondering ,

    • Different surgeons will perform amputation at different locations depending upon their preference, expertise, recommendation, and/or tumor location among other reasons. Please contact your vet with any specific concerns. If there are at least two joints in the limb, your dog may be a good candidate for a prosthetic. Start here for help finding the many Tripawds resources where you will get much more help and feedback than you will on this old post from 2008.
