Oh my! He is soooooo cute!  He does look like he is moving well.

Your Lucy/Linus/Snoopy names gave me a flashback to when I was a kid.  My parents got my brother a girl puppy from the shelter, you know, to teach him responsibility way-confused.  After a week of going through every girl name ever known my brother decided to name her Snoopy! 

I admire you guys that do foster work!

OMC 😍Linus is adorable and I agree the teens are outnumbered on this one. They cannot ALWAYS get their way 😏😉

Linus is doing fantastic you have to be thrilled and amazed. Animals are amazing they just figure it out! Linus will not be disabled in any way he will be differently ABLED!! Just wait and see 😁

I’m not surprised I knew he would figure it out quickly. Great on the Vet input see how things go he is soo teeny weeny if the stump causes an issue later on and needs to go KNOW Linus will do great either way!

Thanks for the video too sweet we will take more whenever you want to share the pawgress!

Are we keeping Linus? 😻hehe

Well, two of our three current cats are foster failuressmiley It can be hard to give them up sometimes.

As long as he is going to a good home I’m okay with giving him up. The trick will be to find him the right home.
