    Canada is the sweetest, cutest puppy I’ve had in foster

    Hi everyone,

    Canada (who I call June) came into my home at about 6 weeks of age. Right off the bat I could tell she was special. June was born with 3 legs and a rather noticeable overbite. The wonderful staff at the AARCS clinic ensured she was set up for navigating her way around with the missing limb. She has been checked out by the vets and there are no concerns there as she is capable and moving around very nicely (nothing seems to slow this girl down!).

    Due to the overbite June has, she had her bottom front baby teeth removed as they were causing her some difficulty and will need to get her adult teeth removed as well. This is also not stopping her from living her best life! Because her gums are a little tender, she is nipping a little but a little distraction with a toy and she changes her tune.

    June is really the most friendly, outgoing, no fear, cuddle bug I’ve had as a foster. She loves to play with the resident dogs, the humans that come around and she really enjoys nap time, she will even make the cutest little grunts when she is falling asleep.

    June sleeps through the night, only having to have a pee break every now and then but will go right back to bed. She is very scheduled on feeding time and she gets very excited about it. June is coming along with potty training, she loves to be outside running around, but she still has accidents in the house so will need a family with lots of patience and understanding while she continues to learn this part of life.

    I will steal your heart!

      Yes, Medical Needs

      Not only was I born with a missing leg but the vet also told me that I have teeth problems! I have what they call a “severe over bite”. As a puppy, I have already needed a few teeth extracted because they were growing into my gums and causing problems. Unfortunately, the Doctor tells me that my adults will also need to be removed as they will also cause problems once they grow in.
