Help Tripod find a home!

A special little three-legged fellow is hardly aware of his disability. He spends his days carefree, playing around with the other dogs and children who visit the shelter at the Change for the Better Foundation.

Having been in the care of his rescuers since August last year, Tripod, as he is affectionately called, has recovered well and is now longing for a loving family home.

He was hit by a car on 12 August last year and left for dead.

“He looked very bad when we got him. His front leg was hanging by a thread of skin and he was in excruciating pain. Someone walking past found him lying in the road in the vicinity of Mountain View Farm near Fisantekraal and brought him in,” says Annelie van Wyk, an animal activist from Brackenfell.

His leg was broken clean off and nothing could be done to save it.

“The vet had to amputate. He spent six months at the shelter to rehabilitate and is now ready for adoption,” she says.

Tripod gets on very well with children and other dogs and has bundles of love to give.

“He is gorgeous, with a very playful and joyful personality. There is still a lot of ‘puppy’ in him and it is as if he is not even aware of his disability,” she says.

To enquire or adopt him, email info@changeforthebetter.co.za or call Annelie on 084 700 1925. An adoption fee and a strict home check will apply.
