Caring for a Three Legged Dog or Cat
Tripawds is your home to learn how to care for a three legged dog or cat, with answers about dog leg amputation, and cat amputation recovery from many years of member experiences.
We have a very special puppy we’re looking to place in the right family…one with abundant love, time, and attention to give to this little guy. He’s stolen our hearts. He’s currently 3.5 weeks old and will be 8 weeks the very end of June. He is missing part of his front leg. Our vet believes it was something called amniotic ring, a growth restriction in the womb. The vet hasn’t identified any other issues. He is doing amazing, we’re so inspired by his strength and gentle nature. We have 7 kids and this little guy (and all his littermates) receive so much love and affection. Mom is our inside family dog and this is her second litter. Both parents have health clearances through PennHip and OFA, as well as clear Embark DNA testing, and AKC registration. If you read this and feel like your family and home would be a good fit for this little guy feel free to reach out to me. I’m not sure the best way to communicate but I figure we can start in this topic. We live in Southeastern PA. The rest of the litter is sold, so all our time and attention is on finding this little guy his home. We call him Tiny Tim. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks for reading!

Yes I would love a photo too!
OK this is how adding images works in the Forums.
Basically you need to:
- upload a photo somewhere like your own Tripawds blog, or a public image hosting site like Imgur.com
- then copy the image URL (or just tap the image and copy it if you're on a mobile device)
- return here, and paste the image into your forum post.
Hope that makes sense. Let us know if you'd like help!

He reminds me of T-pod. In fact I sent his mom a message on FB. Pretty baby.

It’s encouraging to hear about these others pups:). We can already see what an amazing fighter he is as he’s learning to walk. Our biggest struggle right now is nursing, bc mama has started standing to nurse her babies and he can’t balance to get up to her. He needs one on one nursing time to get his nourishment, which is going well! We’re located in Southeastern PA.
