THIS IS OPIE — a 13-lb, 3-yr-old, tan-with-black-mask Shih Tzu with 3 legs!  This poor little guy was dumped in the shelter with a broken leg.  When our vet opened up the leg to repair it, he realized the damage was too severe and had to amputate.  But Opie doesn’t doesn’t let a missing leg slow him down!  He plays fetch with the best of them!  Loves his walks too!  He can be a little possessive of food and toys, but we’ve been working with him on it.  Opie is looking for a home where someone is around most of the time, as he doesn’t like being left alone for more than a few hours at a time.  Kids over 8 yrs old are welcome!  He’d love another small, playful canine companion in the household as well — someone to show him the ropes!  He seems to be housetrained in his foster home, but we never guarantee.  Do you have space in your heart for this adorable tripawd?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
