Me and my fiancé just adopted a 5 month old tripawd, brought her home on Saturday, haven’t even had her a week and I have never been so in love with a pup before!
She was rescued from Puerto Rico after she was hit by a car. They weren’t able to save her leg and had to remove it. Even after everything she has been through she is still the sweetest girl!

Hi Kimberly! Welcome to the Tripawds family! To post a picture here, it needs to already be hosted somewhere else online. Some of us start a free blog on Tripawds just to use it as a place to house the photos for that reason. Once your photos are uploaded somewhere, right click on them to copy the image address and then paste that directly into your post. I hope that helps! I love Winnie's name - it was my grandmother's! ~ Stacy (Griffin's Journey)
Griffin lived an amazing life for 11 years! Diagnosed with osteosarcoma on March 17, 2020, Griffin's right forelimb was amputated on April 2, 2020. Ten days later he was running and playing fetch! Lung metastasis discovered in July 2020 did not slow down Griffin and he lived joyfully for the next 7 months, passing peacefully at home on February 11, 2021. https://griffin.tripawds.com

Hello and welcome to you and Winnie!
Did she lose a front or rear leg?
My current Tripawd is a little Pug mix who lost her right back leg after being hit by a car when she was 7 months old. Elly is now about 5.5 years old and she does pretty much anything a dog her size and age can do.
Here are instructions for adding photos to forum posts. As Stacy said the photos have to be hosted on line somewhere.
Can't wait to see your girl!
