Hi. My name is Peggy, Peg for short. I was born with only a little stub
for my left front leg. I had a rocky start. My owners did not really want me
beause their dogs hunted rabbits and I could not. I was adopted by Kara Stover,
my favorite person in the whole world. I am about 9 weeks old now.
I may not run like other dogs, but I can make quick time with a kind of hop run -
more like a rabbit. I am spoiled, and get in lots of trouble because I chew everything.
If you have any tips for me, that would be great.
I hope the pictures come out okay, I am even cuter in person.
Hi, I found your "club" when I was searching online for a dog leg prosthesis.
I wanted to prove to myself that I'm correct when I explain to people,
when they ask so often why I haven't gotten a prosthesis for Poppy,
that I don't think one has been designed for a missing front leg.
Poppy gets around great, except that he doesn't like to walk very far anymore.
He swims, runs, climbs stairs and such, but he gets tired after walking a few blocks.
He lost his front left leg two years ago due to bone cancer.
The attached pictures were taken a few months after the surgery.
I put a t-shirt on him until the fur grew back. His photo was in a local newspaper
in their annual "Best of the Beaches" edition - he was the "best pet"
due to his "miraculous recovery from surgery".
