Meet our Chief Fun Officer, Jerry G. Dawg

Hi, I am Jerry G. Dawg, and in 2006, when I was eight years old, I was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. Doctors amputated my leg in order to give me more quality time. My parents, Jim and René, were emotionally devastated. They didn’t know anything about canine cancer, amputation surgery or tripod dogs, so they started blogging and making movies about my life as a way to cope.

Doctors only gave me four months to live. But I didn’t care, because time means nothing to us dogs. Living for the moment is all that matters, so I decided to show my people how to Be More Dog.

Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray

In June, 2007, we hit the road to travel North America in our RV. Mom and Dad drove me 30,000+ miles, inspiring people from California to Maine to Florida, by showing them how awesome three legged dogs can be. Together, we spread the word that “It’s better to hop on three legs than limp on four!”™

Learn to Be More Dog with Jerry’s story.

My people and I had an incredible ride together, until October 3, 2008, when I earned my angel wings under beautiful Montana skies — almost two years past my diagnosis. Although I no longer hop on this earth, my spirit lives on forever through this website and discussion forums for three legged pets and their people.

In 2009, PBS first aired the Nature episode, Why We Love Cats and Dogs. This show depicts the bonds people develop with their animals. It featured my travels with my people—Jim Nelson and René Agredano who founded this site after my cancer diagnosis to help others cope with the difficult decisions they faced.

Today, my people continue our mission to support those facing a cancer diagnosis or amputation for their dogs and cats. Between 2009 and 2020, Tripawds spokespup Wyatt Ray Dawg carried on my legacy from coast-to-coast.

Now, you can help carry on the inspawrational legacy of courageous Tripawds past and present. Share the amazing story of your own three legged hero. Sign up for your own blog and get started today!

Who are Jim and Rene?

Jerry was the Chief Fun Officer of Agreda Communications, the marketing firm founded by Jim Nelson and René Agredano. He was the original inspiration behind Tripawds, and the primary reason they sold everything they owned in 2007 to travel the country together with him in an RV, as featured in Nature: Why We Love Cats and Dogs.
