Diego *3 Legs*'s Info...

Diego *3 Legs*'s Story...
Hi my name is Diego! I am a Miniature Schnauzer estimated to be about 6 years old and I weigh about 16 lbs. I could be a mix but we just don't know. I have silky hair and the sweetest little face anyone could ever imagine! I forgot to mention that I only have 3 legs. The nice people at the shelter took care of me because my front left paw and leg was not looking too good when they found me, so they had to amputate it. I don't let it slow me down very much! I can manage stairs with no apparent problems and I like to follow my foster mom around everywhere she goes. I kind of hop like a bunny which people say is super cute! They don't know if I'm housetrained yet, but I go potty as soon as I get outside so that is a very good sign. I am also great in the car!

I love other dogs! I would love to have a doggy brother or sister to play with but I am happy to just be with my people as well. I don't love being handled but hey, I barely know these people! I should be ok to go to a home with children who understand that I am a little wobbly and may need my space at times. I have not yet been cat tested, but we can make that happen if you have a cat at home! Would you like to meet me? You won't regret it!

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Diego *3 Legs*, a Worcester Tibetan Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Tibetan Terrier for sale in Worcester, or seeking a Tibetan Terrier dog from a breeder in Worcester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Worcester already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Worcester breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Tibetan Terrier breeders who help with Tibetan Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Worcester paves the way for another one to be saved.
