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)

  1. It sounds like Jerry was one very special spirit who adopted you at the purrrfect time in both your lives! Bless your heart for giving this beautiful boy a chance to live out his true nine lives! He will be your guardian always!

    All the very best to you and your fur babies

  2. I am so thankful to have found this resource! Our 7 year old rottie was scheduled to have a cancerous tumor removed yesterday and ended up with a front leg amputation. We just brought her home today and now I know what we really need that our vet did not mention!

    I met Emerson when he first entered the household of Dee and Jez, observed him in doggie school, watched his wonderful interactions with other canines, felt joy when he went swimming at Dee Why , so my utter sadness when he became ill was quite unbearable so to see him now and the videos of him gallivanting at the beach, and his sheer determination is an example to all of us. I have been a registered nurse for 55 years and can honestly say that Emerson is an example to all humanoids that may face physical obstacles–having a loving family and support system is also paramount to ones recovery. I get updates weekly , and know that each day is precious and should be embraced wholeheartedly. All my love from North Carolina!!!! Arf Arf

  4. Thanknyou for sharing the backstory od our delightful Jerry and how he came into your life…..and how “she” became “he”! 🙂 🙂

    Seeiy these lictures makes me smile. He’s just so darn cute! 🙂

    As I’ve said many times before in other posts, Jerry is, and always will be, an INSPIRATIONAL HERO to everyone starting this jkirney. Jerry had a live to live and would not be denied! Of course, having you and your family as his humans, made his life that much more special.

    Jerry was loved every moment of everyday. You did everything possible for that kitty.
    I think when Jerry inexplicably transformed k to a “cuddly cat”,it was because he truly now knew in his Soul what being @oved felt like!

    Interested in helping, possibly adopting a 10 month old lab mix who was born with front leg deformity. His legs are folded up like chicken wings and he currently scoots using his head. Would someone please advise if there’s anything we can do for him? I have many pictures available.

  8. Just starting our journey with our sweet rescue, Riley.._..( Havanese/Poodle X ) He had his R front leg amputated this morning due to an old injury ( abuse & neglect in his former life ) and did very well during the surgery itself and so far so good post surgery ( we haven’t seen him yet ourselves post -surgery …that will come tomorrow morning ) Not sure what to expect once we pick him up tomorrow morning and head home. ?? He will have had 3 laser treatments to help speed up the healing process and will have 4 more treatments over the next few days. We will be restricting his activity and closely monitoring any time spent with our other Rescue dogs and cats. I imagine he will still require pain meds for awhile longer as well. Looking for tips and advice to make especially our first week back home together the best it can be for Riley . Backyard bathroom tips etc would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou. XO

  9. Such a beautiful wedding picture and family. Your boy is adorable. I just found out the news and have to schedule my boys right front leg….I’m petrified. Any help or words of wisdom. Does Bentley do ok getting around? This decision is so hard. I pray your trial works and you get plenty of time with Bentley. My boy Jagen is my big buddy. We’re so blessed!

  10. Misha certainly was in tune with her mission in life, as is Dana. Quite an inspirational team!! Pawsitivity pushes away the fear and shows everyone how to focus on the present! And Luna certainly helped everyone to do that roo! And the art work is delightful.

    Your Mish is a stunning girl! She has aa stronw Warrior Spirit (as does her Mom) and will continue to inspire and touch lives furever arpund here!

  11. I have never used a Yoga mat before, so I have no clue what they even feel like.
    My baby boy Benny is scheduled to have his front leg amputation in a couple weeks. Malti-poo medium sized, 20 lbs. They found a malignant tumor.
    Do Yoga Mats stick to the floor well and not curl up? I also have a disability and use a cane because of my leg. Whatever I get to help Benny has to not curl up so either of us will trip on it.

    • Hi Benny and family. Yoga mats definitely stick well as long as you buy a quality one, not a cheapie (say in the $10 range). They will curl when you first unroll them but all you need to do is curl it the opposite way until it’s flat. The best thing you can do though is get carpet runners, which are just about $15 and up. Best wishes to you and Benny on surgery day, please join our forums and keep us posted.

  12. I am so glad that these videos were done. It was an honor to meet everyone. It was a very emotional time.

  13. What a wonderful idea! My oldest grandson is autistic. He has not met Huckleberry yet because we live 1000 miles away from each other but we talk and do videos often. They will be coming for a visit this summer. He always mentions Huckleberry and that he only has 3 legs. Huck lost his leg for a different reason, but I already ordered it and it’s on his way to him as I type this. He will LOVE this book!

  14. This looks great. 🙂

  15. thanks!! The adventure with the seal was like living in a Disney movie!!! We also had fun with dolphins too!
    Thanks for your enthusiasm!!

  16. Love it! Ordering for my great nephew who loves our tripawd and worries about her. Thanks for writing!

  17. Brilliant! Major applause to both Misha and Dana! The book sends such a beautiful message that everyone can understand! I love the preview clip about the seal adventure! Love it!

    Petra, Paul, Stewie and his Pride Of kittens!

  18. Wow! I just found this – as always I’m a little slow. I got teary eyed too Sally – I really wasn’t expecting to see me or Isa. I’d totally forgotten about the video (except remembering how Renee nearly hurt herself trying not to laugh when I referenced the “marketing guy”)

    and lovely to relive the Pawtry of the Century!

    Yep, I recognize Frankie’s distinctive voice – hard to miss.

  19. Thank you both for your kind words ❤️

    I wanted to give an update, Bowie was restaged this past Friday January 5, 2018. Physical, blood work and x-rays. All clear! I’m hoping to get the osteo vaccine for her that should be available very soon since it was approved for conditional use a few weeks ago. One of the 24 sites is not far from my home. I have had two veterinary oncologists tell me she is the perfect candidate for it. Fingers and paws crossed.

  20. My 3 yr old labradoodle had her front left leg amputated a little more than 3 weeks ago. It was due to osteosarcoma. We are just walking for exercise and very short distances. She appears to have some pain and weakness in her back legs. Is this normal? Thanks

    • Yes, weakness would be normal if you are walking multiple times a day and that is all. A certified rehab vet told us long ago that walks do not build strength, only stamina. Core strengthening, weight bearing exercises, stretches and balance work are all very beneficial so soon after surgery. Check out these Starter Exercises, consider taking advantage of the Maggie Moo Fund for Tripawd Rehab, or download Loving Life On Three Legs for much more information.
