Tripod has three legs, but he doesn't seem to know it. He is a spirited little Chihuahua mix who is currently available for adoption at Oakland Animal Services, where I volunteer. He came to the shelter as a stray with an injured hind leg, and the damage was extensive enough that it needed to be amputated. Life on three legs has not slowed Tripod down a bit, though: he is an eight pound bundle of energy! He hops around quite contentedly and is remarkably fast. We were playing together yesterday and he chased after a tennis ball at a speed that would put his fellow four-legged friends to shame. Tripod is estimated to around five years old - a great age for a small dog! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for adoption information.
