This 3-Legged Vet Ranch Patient Is The Happiest Puppy You’ll See All Day!

Our favorite doctors at Vet Ranch have done it again!

Myles, an adorable stray puppy, had a paralyzed front leg that just dragged on the ground wherever he went. (When you see how much this little guy moves, you’ll realize how much it held him back!)

In a regular shelter, a handicapped pup like Myles would normally be one of the first to be euthanized. It’s a sad reality, but the fact is, many of these facilities simply don’t have the funds for surgical procedures to treat sick or injured dogs.

But lucky for this pup, he landed into the loving and capable hands of the folks at Vet Ranch! They had some work to do, though.

The knuckle on Myles’ paralyzed leg had broken open into a large sore because of the constant friction from being dragged on the ground.

In order to keep him healthy and increase his mobility, Dr. Matt decided to amputate the unusable limb.

But that didn’t get him down! After surgery, the golden-haired Myles was just as happy–or maybe, even happier!–than he was with four legs.

And as an added bonus, there’s now easier access for belly rubs.

Have you ever see a 3-legged dog run so fast?!

Just another reason why we love dogs so much: their unbreakable spirits! Myles is now ready to find his forever home. Good luck, buddy!
