We’re total suckers for all pets, but we have a soft spot in our hearts for the biggest of them all, the giant breed Tripawds who defy the odds, like Pepper the three-legged Mastiff / Dane miracle girl.
Pepper got her wings recently, but her life will always be an inspawration. Here is a lovely story her mum @popsi_potamus sent to us for today’s Tripawd Tuesday tribute.
Pepper the Three Legged Mastiff Miracle Girl
Dearests….hello….I just wanted to reach out and send hope to all those at the beginning of their Tripawd journey or wondering whether amputation would be ok for a big doggie etc….
My beautiful amazing Great Dane / Mastiff survived and thrived for 2.5 years post amputation and nearly made it to 8….
We recently lost her on the 11 May 💔💔💔 and are devastated but so so so grateful for all that beautiful extra time we had with our special amazing pup.
At the time of her amputation I read all the stats on osteosarcoma and had reason to feel overwhelmed….but just had to keep remembering every pups journey will be different and never to give up hope.
She was a miracle and always will be. Sending love to all those Tripawd warriors out there xxxx
