    Story

    Chachi tangled with a porcupine and needed multiple surgeries to remove the quills. As a result of the quill damage, Chachi’s front right leg was amputated and this very resilient boy was up and walking and doing stairs 12 hours after his amputation!

    Mr. Chachi is a total love bug who will do anything for a belly rub and is joyful when he is touching or sitting on a human or playing with other dogs. Chachi has been introduced to dogs of all ages and sizes. He can be a bit forward with new dogs but is respectful of the other animal’s body language and will modify his play-style if he senses the other animal is uncomfortable or timid about his approach.

    Chachi has met humans of all ages and just wants them to like him. Although he is great with people, his size may not be appropriate for children as he can be mouthy when he gets excited.

    Chachi seems to do best with a structured environment, with regular feeding times and walks scheduled in. This 3 legged boy is the definition of “differently abled” not “disabled”. He wants to walk twice a day and even with 3 legs can easily walk, jump, and do stairs. He is young, healthy, and strong!

    Chachi walks well on a harness and leash, and is halti trained. He does get a bit excited if he sees other dogs playing without him, and can pull on the leash, so more training would be a great idea for him. He will make someone a fantastic companion, and a basic obedience class would be perfect for him to learn in.

    Chachi loves to visit puppy daycare or have backyard play dates where he can be free to play with other dogs. He is a wonderful dog, looking for his perfect home!!
