Awe, he’s beautiful.  I’d like to have all the tripawd orphans, just can’t happen.

Dang, how do you find these?  I can’t find any contact info on their site.  I’d like to know how he lost the leg and why he’s in the shelter (surrender, stray, how much history they know).  And he’s so far away from CA.  *sigh*

Doh!  I didn’t read that contact info on the post.  I just clicked the link for their webpage and couldn’t find contact info there.  So, I contacted them and they say that he was a stray.  Very sweet, don’t know how he is with cats though.  And that they don’t know why he’s a tripawd.  So sad.  Somone cared enough to have his leg amputated, I wonder if they are missing him somewhere!?  🙁  I suggested they call area vets to see if they can find a record of a rottie mix amputation in the last few years…  I wish I lived closer, I would just do that myself.  I am still interested in this boy if I can get a bit more info.  Anyone live remotely near Taos??

If tshuvah doesn’t reply, try sending her a PM. She lives near Taos and sent us the info about Baggins.

I just wrote out a long PM and then can’t find her in the contact list?  I started entering a few letters at a time of “tshuvah”, but it doesn’t autofill in the rest…?

Hi, Dawn …

Tshuvah’s mom is “labradorim”.  (I believe she is now in Chicago for the Summer.)

Hope you are able to find out more information on Baggins … he’s sooo cute!!!  When I saw this post it really tugged at my heartstrings. 

Hope you are doing well!

Amputation on 11/10/09, due to Histiocytic Sarcoma in left elbow. Angel Harley earned his wings on 06/24/10.
