We are looking at adopting a dog that lost the lower part of his left front leg at birth due to the bitch being very energetic. Do tripod gaits attract predation in other dogs with high prey drive? Or other aggression from high prey drive dogs? Also, how do they deal with dominant dogs? We have a bitch that is high prey and otherwise is a very good dog.

Hi and welcome! Thanks for thinking of adopting a Tripawd. What kind of breed type is the dog?

I would say that no, most Tripawds do not get beat up by other dogs. There are exceptions of course but for the most part that's just not something we see here. I would say that breed type has more affect on interactions. And the owners confidence level too. 

Before you adopt be sure to check our our articles about adoption:

Keep us posted and let us know if you decide to bring him into your pack.
