found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Stitch is a gentle, mature lab. He is still adjusting to having only three legs, but has been very good about taking it easy, not really bothering the incision, etc. He is still getting used to his new balance issues and developing a 3-legged gait. He manages stairs well and knows to lie down on the non-incision side.
He is well trained (understands going thru doors behind you, waiting for food until “OK!”), and has nice manners, good recall. He does not get on the furniture.
Have not tried him in a crate – he does not appear to need or want one, though other dogs in house love theirs. He has a large bed where he lays when we are not at home.
He loves affection; yet he is a dominant dog and will warn other dogs not to get too near him, especially little active dogs. So far not interested in playing with toys or other dogs.
He would likely be happiest in a quiet home without much commotion and a less dominant dog for company. He enjoys lying out on the deck and going for car rides.
