That is a face of love. Love that you two will have for each other. Welcome to the family, even though it was at the hands of some cruel person.
With Trina being just a pup – she will have no problems. She won't even notice that she is “different.” As you can see from this site, there are a lot older dogs that have lost a leg and coped just fine. So Trina will do great. When she gets to be a “senior” like me, she may have arthritis or mobility problems. But one, that is a long time away, and two, that could happen to a 4 legged dog as well.
Keep posting pics – we would love to see her blossom into a great Tripawd.
So Cute! 🙂
I don't know how I missed your post the first time, please forgive me! Trina is ADORABLE and so sweet looking. Thank dog for the good, loving humans like yourself who are willing to care for the helpless dogs of the world. THANK YOU!
Please keep us posted on how she is doing OK? We are here if you need anything but it sure looks like she's getting around quite well!

What a cutie! Thanks for sharing!!
Chloe became a rear amp tripawd on 7-29-10. Another tumor was removed on front leg 2-20-14. Found 3rd tumor on neck 2-2015, but she's still kicking cancer's butt at age 14. Chloe's blog
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
I hope that this is not illegal or something, but Trina's photo is in a contest for a very cute price..weekend in a spa with your dog. Contest is organised in Facebook page Pes moj prijatelj – means Dog, my friend. This group is great, they are helping dogs all over Slovenia and out, they have also helped me get Trina, so it is sure not some kind of scam.
Well I am really not sure if I can ask this, but if I can, I would be grateful if I could get your likes. I think you must like the page first and than the photo, well I am not sure. Link of Trina's photo is here:

Thank you all in any case..

Oh my gosh of course you can post it here! Tripawd Promotion is what we're all about! You have our vote. Just remember to post here in this discussion often to remind people OK? Good luck!
I wanted to show you guys, what is happening in Bosnia…
I can't breathe when I am watcing this kind of human cruelty, but this is going on very close to me..
Olga, who saved Trina and I are now collecting money for those dogs, for their treatment, for food,…
We are not doing very good, but you know, better some than nothing…
Human cruelty has no borders…
