Toot, who is simply too cute for words, has outgrown her first set of wheels that were obtained while she was still a growing puppy. Born with a total of five legs, Toot had to have the two smaller, deformed legs amputated when she was only four months old.
Toot is now in search of an adult dog wheelchair that will provide support for her remaining front leg that has been weakened by the additional strain of being a tripod without a wheelchair. Toot also has some weakness in one of her rear legs which increases her need for a new, customized dog wheelchair that will take her through her adult life.
Toot, through her owner Linda, has requested support from the Handicapped Pets Foundation for a new dog wheelchair to help her get around town. Linda, who is disabled and also volunteers her time providing foster care for her local animal rescue, is unable to afford the full cost of a dog wheelchair for her precious Toot. Linda would be extremely grateful for the assistance of the Handicapped Pets Foundation supporters, and she has pledged to share Toot's campaign far and wide in an effort to assist us with raising the money necessary to get Toot a new set of wheels while also raising awareness that handicapped pets can lead full, active, happy lives!
