I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Pitch was picked up the little fella with a significantly injured leg last Wednesday, September 16. The vet checked him out and recommended an amputation of his leg. It appears he was either hit or run over by a car. The leg was so badly damaged that amputation seemed like the best way to get him on the mend and feeling better. His left, rear leg was amputated last Thursday (9/17) and I brought him back home the following day. At the time, he seemed in remarkable spirits - alert and not suffering too much. The trauma of the surgery caught up with him over the weekend and he was clearly in a lot of pain. The vet helped him out on Sunday morning and by Sunday evening, he was visibly better. He has been steadily improving ever since.
Pitch is an incredibly sweet and super smart dog. We are really impressed at how quickly he learns things. He knows his name and responds when we tell him to come here. He also responds to the words 'no', 'down', 'potty' and 'go to bed'. I think he also recognizes the name of our other dog, a big Lab mix that hasn't been entirely thrilled about sharing his house with the little whippersnapper. We are crate training him and so far, he has only had one 'accident' in the house. I think that was more our failure to remember to take him out than his forgetting his house-breaking skills. Pitch gets along fine on his three legs and watching him walk and run, it is easy to forget that he is getting by with 25% less than the average dog!
Overall, Pitch is a fun pup to have around. We know that the people at his forever home are going to have a really great dog.
