    Great informative video. I have a chichuahua. I adopted her from the Humane Society of Tampa Bay when she was 6 months old. The day she came out of rehab. She just turned 7 in Oct. Best thing I ever did in my life. I take her everywhere I go. The word ," tripod" makes me furious. Its a complete lack of respect. understand its how people identify them as well. Your video explains alot of great tips. There are also a few that I hope others read this comment. Try and keep jumping up and down to a extreme min. The landings are the concern. Try and make or use ramps to discourage jumping if at all possible. Elevated food dish a great tip. Watch the weight of the animal. They tend to be heavier from a less daily exercise. Another great tip.was length if walks. I walk my little girl more frequent at less intervals. Weight is a huge factor. Watch thier diets. I’m guilty of this one. Hope this helps others as well. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge to help inform others about this topic. If there is anything I can help inform others as well, please reach out. Lucy is my little chi. Truely my best friend.

    Thanks for sharing the tips. We’re considering adopting and this had lots of valuable information!

    Beautiful Blue Tongue! I have one myself, and I’m adopting a three legged dog soon! This video helped thank you!

    My girl is getting a front leg amputation next week. Thank you so much for this.

  15. GooshawnXD on June 15, 2022 at 3:38 am

    Thank you so much for these tips. Im adopting a tripod pup… I’m nervous because she is siberian husky / border collie, both breeds are very high energy so I expect she will be. Im hoping to diy a front paw prosthetic for her but if it doesn’t work out I’m not sure how to safely get her to expel all that energy

    Ty this was pretty intense. I wonder how big my three legged bandito will be, but the information was very helpful.

    Thank you so much for this video. I just learned that my little angel has cancer. If it has not spread throughout her body, her back leg needs to be removed. Needless to say I’m devastated but I’m curious to know where you get the type of carrier you show in this video? She is 15 pounds and a jack Russell terrier
