Dory the Tripawd UPDATE!


Letter from her Adoptive Family!


Our beautiful Kuma Dory (formally known as Dori) is doing very well.  She has grown so much since we adopted her in September.

She loves her brother Kuro, our 2 year old Shiba Inu.  They play together, nap together, and love each other.

She loves going to the mountain with her family.

She dressed up as a Bat Girl and went to a Halloween party at Sleep Rover.  She loves going to Sleep Rover when she is not at work with mom.  

She loves Village Ice Cream (Who doesn’t?).  

She successfully completed the puppy training course at the Humane Society and we are so proud of her.

She still is a rambunctious puppy.  She is also very loving and snugalicious! 

I’ve attached some pictures.  Please say hi to Kim and Theresa, her foster moms.  

Thank you AARCS and Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force for saving her.  We can’t imagine our life without her.  

Happy Holidays,
Mike and Yuko Hansen


Dory’s Story!

Little Miss Dory came in with her 7 siblings (at only a couple weeks old) and their mom during an Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force Clinic.

This little gal lost her front right limb to a possible birth defect, although, it is hard to know for sure. Once brought into our care, our very own Mother Theresa (Rescue Room Volunteer) took to her right away. Young struggling puppies are her specialty! She decided it would be best to bottle feed her to ensure she stays healthy and continues to grow! Dory now wears a sling to keep her leg clean and dry. Her leg was fully amputated when she was 3 months old – she gets along just fine now without it!
