Pringles LOVES tennis balls

march_19_2017 060psUPDATE:  So, it’s been just a month since Pringles came to us with that dangling leg our vet removed.  Just a month when she was nippy from being in so much pain for almost a week.  Just a month when she wanted to huddle and not move.   And now, just a month later you would not recognize this dog!

Pringles is friendly and loving and affectionate.  There is no more being nippy or growling.  march_19_2017 054ps
Pringles can MOVE!  And this stinker is a door darter too and when she gets out you would be incredibly amazed at how fast this three legged dog can move. Just don’t be deceived, you really may not be able to outrun her!   A fenced in yard is desirable.
Pringles is house trained.  Really, she is.
Pringles is fine with other animals, but she has more of a live, let live attitude to life.  From what we see here, do not expect her to cuddle or play with your dog.   If you want just one dog, this may be the one for you.

She is young, dog obedience training would be a really good idea because whether a dog has have four legs or three legs, a dog ought to know how to behave properly.
So, she thought she wanted to meet the horses.  The horses are so much bigger when close up!

sky_pringles_march_19_2017 087psmarch_19_2017 041psShe loves to eat!  I know, she is skinny, but she can put away the food with the best of them.

She is sweet, did I mention that?  Just a really nice dog but she is active, curious and loves a good explore.
She would be great for someone who has energy and loves to go on explores too.march_19_2017 042ps

Being in a lap is a good thing!

Pringles
Ready to be adopted

 

Female,  Brown
Chihuahua
Date of Birth:  February 24, 2016
Weight: 10#

Pringle came to us after being hit by a car.  Her leg, so badly damaged, needed to be amputated.  Pringles Story:

pringle_feb_26_2017 (4)psThis little girl, who had clearly been hit by an automobile and left by the side of the road, was picked up by local animal shelter officers and taken to a local animal shelte

r.  She had a gapping wound on one side of her leg and damage to the other rear leg was extensive.  With the help of a vet’s advice, shelter employees patched up Pringles as best they could while hoping someone would come in and claim her.
That did not happen.
A few days later we picked her up and called our vet to get her in the next morning.
You may wonder about the names we come up with for the animals in our program.  Sometimes we take our time and think them through but then sometimes, well, we have to be quick so we give the vet’s office a name so they can create a file for the dog.  Sitting on the table was a small, snack size of Pringle potato chips so Pringle became her name.pringle_feb_26_2017 (3)ps
We are so thankful for our veterinarians at Kryder’s Veterinarian for being willing to fit in Pringles on a day that was already jammed.   Our relationships with the animal shelters and our veterinarians are so important!  Working together we can help animals in need.   The office was so busy that day, that Dr Kryder spent his lunch break taking x-rays of the Pringle’s hips and leg. He called us with the news. That big bone in the leg? It was completely detached. The best thing was to remove her leg.

pringle_feb_26_2017 (6)psIt has been almost three weeks now, and Pringles is doing fantastic!
She is adjusting quite well to being a tri-pod.  She is moving well and can even do a step up and a step down.
She is a sweet pup.  She does well with other dogs and is good with large birds and I’d guess cats too since she is no bigger then the average cat.

Pringles appears to be house trained.  She developed a bladder infection and is on an antibiotic which has cleared that up.

Pringles would do best in a home with not so much activity, especially while she still adjusts to being a three legged dog.
