    Here's our new rescue-mutt Aimee. They say she's a three-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound. I think they just make stuff up, but who knows. We have our work cut out. She's a wired bundle of muscle with a nose on one end.

    I've lurked on this thread because I agree wholeheartedly! Here's my current lineup of four-leggers:
    Pics - Colby as a 6-wk puppy at the shelter, Jake outside with Colby in the far background, and both on Thanksgiving '16...no problem getting their attention whilst preparing a gobbler. lol

    Jake is a lab-pointer mix, I think - no lineage since he was found wandering at 8 mos. and no one came to get him at the shelter. Currently 7-8 years old.

    Colby is a Beagle-Boxer and others including doberman and rotty - his Mom was found wandering while heavily pregnant, and the person who ended up adopting her got her DNA tested. Currently almost 2 YO.

    I am fairly close with the local shelter staff, which is why I know so much about these guys...

    Thought this thread would appreciate this. For the last pin I sold (Aerosmith Pro), the Pinsider was a bit shy of my asking price, but said he would buy it if he was able to sell an older pin he had for sale. He seemed like a super nice guy and enthusiastic about Aerosmith, so I told him that I would take a few hundred less if he would agree to donate $100 to the local humane society when he sold his older pin. Well, sure enough, he sold his pin and donated - got this letter in the mail today. There really are good people out there - this makes me feel good. Thanks ktuhde for keeping your word, means a lot and hopefully this helps out an animal in need!

    <-- Zoie -- Maltese at about 17yrs, 3 months. Weighed a whopping 3.5 lbs at her heaviest.

    My wife picked her out, she was the runt of the litter.
    Zoie latched onto me within the first day and pretty much ignored my wife from then on. She'd sleep all day and wait for me to get home at night - wake up instantly when she heard me coming in and would follow me all night. I'd sit down and she'd jump up and sit on my shoulder like a pirate's parrot.
    Last few weeks - her health declined radically. Could barely walk, lost her appetite, just became miserable. It was time. Had to have her put to sleep - toughest hour in my life. She'll be missed.

    Bummer Ed...we love them while they are here with us, knowing that someday they'll be gone, which we sometimes think will make it easier, and it very well might, but only to a degree.

    have anyone had a dog that had its rear leg amputated? my brothers border collie is 12+ and she now has a mass about the size a kiwi by her ankle. It currently does not bother her. the vet says its not dangerous for her. the option is another surgery(She had one about 2 years ago to remove a similar size mass I think in the same spot) or amputate.

    I think it would be cruel to take a dogs rear leg so late in its life. my brother is thinking longer term in that if she needed another surgery in about 3 years, she would not survive it. Any opinions?

    I have an 11 year old that I’ve taken in twice to have masses removed. Most were a little smaller than a kiwi.

    If the dog passes the blood test for surgery, and vet can remove it, I say do that. Remove the mass, not amputate.

    We just found a mass in one of my dogs rear leg. We decided not to amputate because of her age and it was bone cancer. In general dogs do well with the rear leg being amputated. Recovery time is generally 1-2 months and dogs adjust well. My dog limits her self and just walks on three legs.

    I would be curious as to what the mass is and why it needs removed if it is not cancerous. Seems odd they would recommend amputation if it is not causing her mobility problems.

    My brother says the vet says its a spindle cell tumor. The vet says they grow faster as time goes on and surgery cant keep it from coming back. I was wrong about how fast its growing back. Its been about 18 months. The mass currently is about 1.5-2x larger than the previous mass. The previous mass was about golfball size and was more of a free mass. this one looks like its growing right up against the bone.

    Ok that makes sense! That is tough decision. He will need to consider how healthy the dog is now. As someone else mentioned lab work might help make a decision.

    But as I said before losing a limb for a dog is much different that it would be for us. It is generally easily adapted to especially a rear leg and if the dog is otherwise in good health. FYI...I work in dog rescue. Of course if he trusts his vet have him ask for their recommendation....I am guessing they will vote amputation. For us we chose not to because my dog already has mobility issues ( plates in all 4 legs) and the bone cancer had spread past the leg.

    thanks for the info. Its my brothers call, and he and his vet favor amputate. She is healthy. Maybe a little overweight. My brother is working on her weight and waiting until it seems to bother her or something forces it to happen. But probably will get done in the next month or two.
