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)
Thank you for responding, he is a cutie!! My ex husband just offered me a lot of brand new carpet (he had bought it for his unfinished basement, prior to meeting his new wife, they got got married, finished the basement & she hated the carpet, lol) I don't care what it looks like, it's more than enough to cover my hardwood floors in my living (More)

We only have have deck steps & there is a ramp already being made (He doesn't go down the steps now & I have Meniere's Disease, so the ramp is really for both of us, I don't do well at night,on the steps) I'm very worried about keeping him down, I totally love him to death, but he is a little s (More)

  1. Such a GREAT story of hope!! Beautiful Nikki, keep on keeping on sweet girl! We love inspirational stories like yours!!!

    Lots of love!
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  2. There’s a lot of what seems like very helpful advice but this seems to conflict with what I’ve read elsewhere, including on this website: initially your dog’s activity should be very limited. We’re day two after surgery and I hope I’m doing right by my girl by limiting her movement. If she was left to her own devices she would be doing everything she usually does. It’s tough limiting her but I suspect the right thing because the little she’s done (she’s fast and sneaky) seems to have caused her skin to become saggy. I think ultimately it will be fine but it’s not the ideal recovery.

    • Best wishes for your pup! Please point us to any information you feel may be contradictory. Confinement and moderated actic=vity are definitely key to a quick complete recovery. Then, focus on rehab exercises and conditioning before slowly work up to longer walks. FYI: Walks do not build strength, only stamina. Consider downloading Loving Life on Three legs, or better yet – consult with a certified canine rehab therapist for a professional evaluation and specific exercises to help your dog (once completely healed). Visit a CCRT or CCRP and the Tripawds Foundation can even pay for your first visit! Start here for help finding the many Tripawds Resources an assistance programs.

  3. Sameer, my buddy Gregor and I are in the same predicament. Did you ever get a second opinion or find out?
