In Honor of Colt the Three-Legged Wonder Dog

Congratulations to Colt the Three-Legged Wonder Dog! He lost his leg but not his spirit. His mom Brooke made a donation to Tripawds Foundation. We are so touched by her generosity. Here’s what she told us in a recent email:

Colt the three-legged wonder dog
Colt is doing great after amputation surgery!

Our dog, Colt, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in late January 2021. I rescued Colt a little over 6 years ago and unsure of his exact age, but I do know he’s an older guy weighing in at about 130 lbs.

After the diagnosis and numerous sleepless nights, I found your Tripawds site. I cannot even begin to tell you how much hope it gave me.

We opted to have the surgery (front right leg amputation) after reading countless stories on Tripawds describing similar situations. He had the surgery in February and is doing great so far! He continues to make progress each and every day.

Tripawds has truly gotten us through every step of the way. Pre-surgery, post-surgery, and everything in between. I’m beyond grateful for everything you guys do and the support you’ve given us during this incredibly difficult journey. I can’t even imagine going through all of this without Tripawds. Thank you so much again, it means the world to us ❤

  1. I’m going through the same thing. I have a 95 lb red boned coonhound black lab mix and most likely she has osteosarcoma. I’m not sure I want to do a bone biopsy but the radiologist suggested to get a definitive diagnosis. It’s just so much money and unfortunately I’m not a rich person. I know we can’t put a price tag on our pets, but I also have to be realistic. It’s taken me so king to find an oncologist. It’s been complete torture. I’ve been debating whether or not to amputate cause I’m getting info from my vet telling me that even with amputation you may only get 6 months, yet I read these stories where dogs have lasted a year. Omg, what I would do for one more year with my baby. Did I mention she’s a beautiful and healthy 9.5 yr old. She’s 95 pounds which worries me should I decide amputation is the way to go. My family members think I’m crazy and why would I put my dog through that. I’m so torn. Any advice would be appreciated.
