Tripawd Havanese puppy

We may have an opportunity to adopt a tripawd Havanese female puppy... does anyone have any experience raising a Havanese tripawd? We already have Jack, who turned 1 in June and loves interacting with all kinds of other dogs, so this would be our second Havanese. No young children in the household, no stairs, but we do have hardwood floors. Any advice would be appreciated ! 💕

I donít have experience with a tripawd Havanese, but my son has a tripawd cat and a friend, a dog. I donít think it would be any different with a Havanese. As this article says, we are the only ones that can see they are missing a limb. These animals do very well and definitely do act as if they have no idea they are missing a limb. Here is an article you may want to read: https://www.petmd.com/dog/general-he...s-aka-tripawds. Good luck to you and your furry friend!

thank you for the link and yes, you are right....we are the ones that notice a limb is missing!. Jack loves other dogs and is an only child right now at 16 months and I think what it will really come down to is are we ready for puppy? We are all set with the right equipment and the right amount of love !!!

We had some neighbors with a 3 legged dog and the dog did fine. It was an older dog and would tire out on long walks but that was probably in part due to the age. It was missing a hind leg if that makes any difference. On a spring camping trip, the campground host had an older 3 legged dog that was also missing one of the hind legs. It was a large, heavy dog and was beginning to have trouble supporting itself to go to the bathroom. I don't know if that can be a common problem with older dogs 3 legged dogs. They were considering getting a cart (doggie wheelchair) for the dog.

thank you Jackie for sharing your experiences. I talked to my vet today...she is also a skilled surgeon and has a lot of experience in this area, she said don’t worry about it. Apparently as long as there are no other serious health issues, a puppy missing a limb will do just fine as they know no other way, especially with smaller breeds. It’s seems the most important thing is to maintain a healthy weight. Another family is deciding if they are going to take her, so we will have to wait to find out! Willow is adorable btw, and the possibility of putting a pink bow in a little girl Havanese puppy with a special need is calling to my heart��
