Tripod Pitbull needs new front leg

Meet Dez ! The 4 year old tripod pitbull from Texas who now lives in California. 

Dez was found in an abandoned house in Spring, Tx in 2015 when he was just a pup. He had a lacerated and mangled front leg which resulted in an amputation. He spent the next year of his life in foster homes and puppy camps. 

Then came me ! I rescued Dez and six months later we moved to California. 

Dez doesnt seem to notice that he is missing a leg but here lately, he can’t do too much. He used to be able to walk up stairs and walk more than a block. So, a trip the vet revealed that he has elbow dysplasia on his only front elbow. 

Dez is mostly bed bound at the moment. I have to carry him up stairs and life isn’t much fun for him. Some have recommended putting him down but he has so much life and personality in him !

Alone, I can’t afford the surgery but sometimes it takes a village ! I’ve also learned that there are really surprisingly generous folks out there.

Please consider helping to donate to Dez’s new leg and recovery. 

Blessings !
