Cute Tripawd Gretchen in No. Calif. needs a furever home!

My mom ran across this sweetie on the web today , she is with Big Dog Rescue in Penngrove, near Santa Rosa. I should call them and tell them she needs two names–Gretchen Rae? Gretchen Sue? Gretchen Mae? Watcha think? Then she could joint the Awesome Tripawd Girldodgs With 2 Names Club! My mom posted this in the forums but I wanted to put her info here too to maximize her exposure. Won’t you think about giving her a home?

Gretchen is a black and silver German Shepherd puppy. She’s about 7 months old. She’s a very sweet girl and loves to play. Gretchen unfortunately had a run in with a car and lost her right rear leg in an accident, at the time of the surgery she was also spayed. She is very good with dogs and not aggressive but very curious about cats. Her foster family is working on house training, basic obedience (she already knows sit and down), and strengthening her rear leg. She has become quite adept at going up and down stairs. Gretchen can jump into a car but needs help with taller vehicles. She’s a special girl with special needs, her new family will need to keep her fit and trim because of the missing leg. Despite her handicap, she loves to cuddle, walk, run and play.

    Cutie indeed. Is there a right rear tripawd conspiracy going on in California?

    Awwww, what a sweetie. It is good all these sweet tripawds live over 2,000 km from me. Or else Tazzie would have all the brothers and sisters he ever wanted! She looks like a wonderful dog. Smart and Sweet.
