From Ruff House Rescue – Introducing Luna the tripod Luna is a 2 year old shepherd mix and has really thrived in the past few weeks in foster! She is sweet, resilient, loving and eager to learn!!! Although she’s recently lost her leg- the vet has given her the ok to resume normal activity and that’s exactly what she’s doing! She can run, jump, etc She’s been cleared for adoption so submit an application quickly because we don’t think she’ll last too long! Who doesn’t love a tripod?
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

What a cutie! If I could I would.
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!
