She can’t manage long walks and gets quite stiff if we overdo it…

More frequent much shorter walks are best for all new Tripawds. Also keep in mind that walks do not build strength, only endurance. Core conditioning, weight bearing exercises, balance work, and stretching are all important for building muscle mass and regaining strength to compensate for the missing limb. There are many starter exercises you can do to help get and keep Ginny fit and strong. Or, consult with a CCRT or CCRP for a professional rehab evaluation for a specific exercise regimen and you may get reimbursed from the Maggie Moo Fund for Tripawd Rehab.

Oh I love her new name, and the bootie video, priceless!!  She looks just wonderful, makes my heart skip a beat heart I am glad you are not trying to push her too much, it takes time and she is not a spring puppy anymore winker  Everything I have read here concurs that shorter walks are better walks. No need to exhaust her and you are getting plenty of exercise with your other furbabies. 

She looks like she has known and loved you all her life, I am so glad she has such a pawsome forever home with just the bestest pawrents!!

What a great life, Juniper is living like a rock star! You and your husband are so patient with her, it’s only a matter of time until she won’t need the meds anymore. And now Alex will too, thanks to all your hard work. 

Thank you for the wonderful work you do to help animals at the shelter. You sure do put lots of love and kindness in this world!

Go Ginny! 

I may have shared this before but my rescue Tripawd Elly was very wary of men when I got her, which was a problem since I live with my elderly father.  For the first 3 weeks after I got her she barked at him every morning when she first saw him and according to him she bit him once- thankfully not hard enough to even leave a mark.  I think he tried to pick her up, which she doesn’t like at all.  Anyway- one of my dad’s jobs around the house is feeding the dogs- it took close to a year before Elly would go down stairs without me for breakfast!  She has been with us now for over 2.5 years and she loves my dad! She follows him around the house whenever it is close to feeding time, and she sleeps with him when I am out of the house at night.  It was a slow process building her trust but they are bonded now.

Thanks for your replies. When it was cooler here, she would sleep between me and my husband on our pillows, but now it’s warm at night, she prefers to sleep on her own bed. It was amusing but also sad to see her being shy of him in the mornings, when she’d been cuddled up to him all night! I know they will get there in time, and he’s wonderful for not trying to force the issue. Sometimes on a walk she will run to him with glee, other times she will take a wide path around him. We don’t know her history at all, and it may be that nothing in particular happened to cause this shyness, but I’m sure she’ll learn in time that he’s a Good Thing. For now, though, she’s a happy little girl who has landed on all three feet with her new life, where she is comfortable, safe and loved 24/7 🙂

And that is so wonderful!! My Rosie was a hit by car rescue that was brought in to the hospital that i worked at as an emergency. They chased her for three days, and on day three she ran head on into a car. I thought she was going to die. I did the emergency work on her with 2 other vets and a couple other technicians. Once she was stabilized one of the docs and i took her case, and as she healed i was her primary caregiver. When she was strong enough to go to the shelter to be put up for adoption i couldn’t let her go, A/C was tickled to have a tech adopt her.

She was scared to death of men, and really hated young tall slender men. 

In time she grew to adore my son, my dad, and my husband. Was a lot of slow, careful love that all three men gave her, just like your husband is doing now. I have no doubt with the way she is responding now that they will end up closely bonded, just like Elly and Rosie with their respective men ❤️❤️❤️
