Hi Cassie! My name is Sophie. I'm not sure, but I think
I'm about 15 months old. I'm a brindle Sheltie, but do
not know if I am a purebred or a Sheltie mix. I was the
victim of a hit and run accident. The Southland Sheltie
Rescue group in La Habra, California found me at animal
control, and by the time I was released to them, it was
too late to save my leg.
My new mom and dad adopted me in March and did not care
that I had only three legs. They still wanted me.
I now live on the central coast in California near the
beach with my older sister Sara and six indoor cats.
We all get along great and I especially like my two
brother cats, Andy and Aspen, because they like to run
up and down the hallway with me. Sara also likes to run
and wrestle with me and we have a lot of fun.
Since living in my new home, I have seen so many new things.
My mom and dad say that I am a quick learner and that I am
growing up very nicely. Since I have been in my new home,
I get to sleep on the big bed with Sara and my new parents.
I know that I now have a good home and that they love me
very much, and will always take care of me and keep me safe.
It's nice to feel loved and wanted. Thank you, Cassie,
for starting a 3-legged club and for sharing your web site
with all of us.

Just wanted to wish Cassie and you guys a Merry Christmas from
California. Sending along a Christmas of Sophie and Sara.
Sara had to have a toe amputated from her back foot several
months ago. Cancerous growth on a pad which was malignant,
so one complete toe had to removed. She is doing well
and the vet felt positive everything was removed.
Have a wonderful holiday.

My name is Hunter's Skyline Storm. My friends and
family call me Stormy and I am 2 years old. I live in Cody WY.
I am not a three-legged dog but a three-footed dog.
I was born with a birth defect and my right leg and foot did
not finish developing. I ended up with my family because the
people who had my dam could not find anyone to take me and
their vet wanted to take my leg off. When my sires family
heard about that they were worried about how I would be able
to swim without my front leg, so they asked my dams family
if they could have me. My new mom drove to Idaho to get me.
I live with five other family members, Dianna my mom, Steve my Dad,
Sam (he is my sire) and Athena (my best friend). We have lots of
fun together, running, fighting, and playing and I love to
annoy Squirt, the family cat.
About a year ago I ended up having problems with my stump, it
kept filling with fluid. When the vet looked at it he told my
family that we had two choices: we could cut the leg off,
because if it got infected for any reason it would probably
be impossible to get rid of the infection, the other choice
was to get a prosthetic. We chose the prosthetics and I am
still trying to learn how to use it. By using it the fluid
in my stump has gone away and we are hoping that it will
keep me from having hip problems.
