We Need Your Help . . .

We have a special needs puppy in our midst, and a wonderful breeder whose heart wouldn't let her take the advice of her vet, and have him put down simply because his mother bit off his foot in the birthing process. He is otherwise perfect, chubby, healthy and absolutely beautiful (my assessment). His coloring is just like Bailey's was.

There is no place in the world I'd go to before here to see if we can find him the perfect home. Here are photos of the beautiful boy who will no doubt make someone's life just as special as he is.

Any ideas?

Awww, he is so beautiful.

Dogs do surprisingly well with only 3 legs. Dogs rely more on their front legs than hind legs so he should do fine. Since he has been this way since birth he will probably do even better than most.

I hope he finds a wonderful "furever" home.

OMG, what a wonderful little boy. I just know there is someone who will take him and make his life just full of love and joy. I can see him being a therapy dog in the future.
I can't wait to see how this works out, I can just feel good things in store for him and his new owner!

He's absolutely adorable! If I were in the position to take on another puppy, I'd do it in a minute! I hope (and believe it will happen!) that some one else jumps at the opportunity to give a good home to such a lovely little guy!!!

How would this puppy do if placed in a home with another Hav? I wish I could recall who it was, but what I recall was that there was a member who had multiple dogs, and when one became ill, the others, or one of the others, started picking on him/her. Would other dog(s) see this as a weakness and pick on this little guy? Would he best be placed in a home where he was the only dog? Or are other dogs usually OK with something like this, as it is not an illness or a decline due to old age?

Look at that face...and those eyes...

There is a "3 legged" pug up the street from me. He had a similar experience (6 years ago) and is fine.

Linda,

He should do fine with other dogs.

When a dog becomes ill, weak, disabled, etc. it's a "natural order" for the pack (in the wild) to rid themselves of the weak member. The pack is only as strong as it's weakest link... Usually when something happens to a dog, it's scent changes. As dogs get older, they smell different, infections have an odor to them, open wounds smell like fresh blood, etc. That's usually what triggers this type of behavior.

But this little guy, although disabled, will be fine. He won't have an odor of illness, and I'm sure he will get around just fine without one paw. He may not be able to play as rough as some of the other dogs, but they won't see that as a sign of weakness, rather as a personality trait.

Awwwww omg he is sooo cute!! I love love love his coloring and he looks so healthy...I really hope someone takes him on the forum. I feel so bad I wonder if he is in any pain...I can't believe the vet wanted to put him down!! Is the breeder going to keep him if she doesn't find a home for him?
