He's approximately four years old and my daughters met him at a
local SPCA shelter. They saw him in the cage and immediately fell
in love with him.
In fact, it was a good minute or two before they realized Stan was
missing his right hind leg.
We don't know the circumstance of his amputation because Stan was a stray
from the Midwest and was brought to upstate NY for adoption.
We've had our family veterinarian examine him and she had thought that
his leg was surgically amputated and that it was an old procedure.
He appears to be between three and five years old, based on his physical condition.
Stan has become a big part of our family.
He loves his wooded yard (we installed an invisible fence for Stan's safety)
and it appears his streak of bad luck has finally been broken.
We love Stan's outlook.
His gentle demeanor has made him a big hit with all our neighbors and friends.
Thanks for such an informative website.

I'm not sure what you want to know exactly,
but I saw Max on the Humane Society of SW Michigan's website.
They were attempting to raise $ for an amputation.
He was a stray with a shattered and healed left front leg
and the leg had to amputated.
Yada Yada Yada, he is now here in my home with my Beagle
(8 years old and adopted at 5 years old from a local rescue agency,
and African Gray Parrot. Today is Tuesday - his surgery was last Thursday and he is doing fine.
I am anxious to share information with other members so I handle this situation correctly.
Thanks in advance for your help.
