Meet Tootsie the Tripawd! We don't know much about her past, but we know that she may not have had the best of life prior to coming to Saved By Fate. She has come a long way after a leg amputation and lots of dental work, and has finally healed up from surgery. Tootsie is now looking for her own forever family.
Tootsie is low-maintenance and mainly likes to lay around the house. She enjoys taking short walks (with breaks) and laying outside observing. She gets around just fine on leash, despite only having three legs.
Some adorable qualities: Tootsie snores when she's sleeping and snorts and growls when she plays. She likes having all the attention on her at times because she's never experienced that before... but she's learning to share the spotlight with her foster siblings!
In a forever home, Tootsie would get along best with a medium-high energy dogs. She's done great around puppies and other adult dogs. A dog who respects personal space when another dog asks for it would be best matched with Tootsie. Sadly, Tootsie cannot live with cats. She’s been around kids ages 9 and up and has done great with them. To be honest, she doesn’t care who she's around as long as she's getting attention or cuddles!
Tootsie still has the occasional accident in her foster home, which she and her foster mom are working on, but she knows to use puppy pads and go outside whenever possible. Please don't hold that against her - it seems as though Tootsie was an outdoor-dog in her previous life. Because she is missing a front leg, she would do best in a home without stairs or hardwood floors. We think she'd do okay in a first-floor apartment.
She is crate trained but isn't destructive if she's left in a room, confined with baby gates. Tootsie is a low-medium energy dog and doesn't cause any trouble. All she asks for is her dog bed and a couple of toys!
Tootsie would love to have a family for the holidays, as this will be her first holiday season that she will get to enjoy. Her foster mom adores her but would love for Tootsie to have her own family to spoil her even more!
We estimate that Tootsie is somewhere between 4-6 years old and weighs about 40 pounds. If you’re interested in adopting, please apply at savedbyfate.org and we’ll be in touch ASAP. Her adoption fee is FULLY SPONSORED!Tootsie has completed her vet care and can go to her forever home whenever.
