Today I picked up a little 9 month old baby out of an awful situation. She's 37lbs. I know she should not be overweight, especially that she's a tripod but yikes...She has to eat a cheeseburger or something. Seriously though, the poor thing has horrible tummy issues also. :( She is scared of everything and everyone. It's awful to know...and not know...what she's been through. I've heard so many different stories...I do not know what to believe but the important part is that she's out of that situation and here with me. They believe her "owner" broke her leg. He said he came home from work one day and it was just all mangled up. :confused:

I'm carefully introducing my current three GSD's to this new little girl. They aren't being as welcoming as I hoped they would be but...I'm still going to try. Last year I adopted my senior GSD just before he was going to be euthanized and it was awful when I brought him home. I mean OMG awful!! But...I made it work and they are all best buds now. :wub: I hope I can help this little girl also! Here is Hera...

PS...Yes, I like mythology. Thor, Athena, Apollo and Hera. :)



Here is Athena checking on Hera...



Here are my three GSD's that I had before I rescued Hera today... :)

She is so pretty. Be careful with the weight and I'm positive it will all work out:)

That is great you were able to rescue her. Saw a three legged dog at the beach today. I am amazed that they can get around so well. She does need some meat on the bones. Hope you can find the right food for her tummy. Love the pic of GSD driving his pals around.

Poor thing, I'm glad she's in a safe loving home now. I know a couple of tripods, as Lombardo mentioned the major thing is keeping them lean to reduce stress on their joints.

The tractor picture is awesome!! :)

The video did work. I have to say that I hope you know how amazing it is that you have taken not only this one, but the last one to. She has got to be completely amazed at where she is from where she came from. After all of that and she still has spirit in her eyes and love in her heart:)

She's so pretty. Such a sweet face. Our neighbors had a Boston terrier with three legs and he did a great job of keeping up with the other dogs.

Wow I'd walk a mile to meet her. I really wanted to view the video so hopefully you can figure out how to post one that works.

She looks so iddy biddy thin but I'm guessing that's a good thing for a tripod. What I never understood is how some dogs that come from miserable conditions can be so upbeat and loving. That picture of her with the little girl speaks a lot to me!

Thanks for taking her in and giving her a lovely forever home! Keep us posted about her please! c:
