Finding an Egg on Our Easter Egg Hunt
Tripod at 1 Year

"Nothing like a cool drink of water on a hot day!"


Tripod
Breed: German Shepherd DogGender: Male
Story: We have seven dogs, all rescued, so right now I will showcase Tripod. As the name suggests, he only has 3 legs. I volunteer for a local rescue group and he was to be a foster child. He was nine weeks old when we got him. He is a purebreed German Shepherd, with some defects, that his mother was aware of, and so she tried to get rid of him. She managed to chew off his right back leg before he was saved. The vet that took care of him, took him in because the "breeder" obviously did not want him. The rescue group took over and we volunteered to foster and try to rehabilate him. Unfortunately, his defects were too severe and he was never able to walk on 3 legs. Actually he has very minimal use of his other back leg. He also has bowel and bladder incontinence, so adopting him out was a big problem. But he had too much life to live for us to do anything but welcome him to our family. We do a lot of cleaning, but we wouldn't have it any other way. He now is a year and 4 months old. After he turned 1, we figured he was about done growing. The upper half of his body is very developed. We ordered him a cart. Oh, my gosh!! He walks everyday; we have a ramp to load him in the car when we go to the park. People see us and say, "You are very special people!" and I tell them, "No, he's a very special dog!"
Thank you for making such a wonderful product. We originally got Flint River for Tripod because of the reduced waste factor and it being so natural and baked without all those unnecessary additives, but now all the dogs are on it along with a vegetarian food we use. Sorry I don't order any treats, but that's my department. A few years ago I started making dog, cat, and rabbit treats to help raise money for our rescue group, just around the holidays, but now I am just starting to expand. The proceeds go to the rescue group, so I guess it's not going to be a money making business for me!
