Are you in Colorado or Wyoming? Seeking that special Tripawd rescue dog to bring into your home? If so then Tuffy the Tripawd Rescue may be the perfect pooch for your pack!
We met this sweet boy yesterday at Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Dr. Theresa Wendland, DVM, of the CSU Small Animal Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation department introduced us to the affectionate Tripawd you’ll ever meet. The CSU team fell in love with Tuffy when a local rescue brought him in. Tuffy had a broken limb that couldn’t be saved. In this video Dr. Wendland explains his situation:
Tuffy has some vision loss but you’d never know it. Even when he was in excruciating pain before the partial limb amputation, he kept on giving kisses and love to the whole team.
Since he has so much leg left, Tuffy is the ideal prosthetic candidate. As a result, Dr. Wendland and her team are fitting him for a prosthetic limb and enrolled him in the CSU Tripawd Prosthetic Study.
As we reported earlier, all enrolled dogs will receive a free prosthetic limb, fittings and follow-up care at no cost. Tuffy is a lucky dog!
The ideal adoption family for Tuffy should live within driving distance to Colorado State University, so that Tuffy can get trained to use his new limb and tracked as part of the study.
