About Dany

Dany is a wonderful little dragon beast. She has 3 legs. She is super smart and awesome. Sometimes she's cuddly, but she's not allowed on the furniture. She loves a good butt scratch. She loves to play, but not as much as she loves to hunt squirrels/cats/rats/birds/etc. Because she has 3 legs, she doesn't like to walk too much on hard surfaces. For that reason, most all of her exercise comes at the park. She loves people, but it takes her a minute to warm up to other dogs, particularly if they rush at her. It makes her nervous they'll knock her over. She hates, I mean hates, skateboards. They were a factor in the accident that resulted in her amputation, so it's understandable, right? Mostly, she is an adorable little beast that loves to be good, and to be petted, and learn things, and get rewarded with treats (but not too many because she needs to stay lean for the health of her remaining front leg).

  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 5 years, 4 mo. old
  • Weight: 43 lbs
  • Breed: Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
  • Tracking Chip: Yes
  • Spayed: Yes
  • House Trained: Yes
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    Just watch her that she doesn't jump on them. But she likes kids and seems to do well around babies.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    She doesn't always like to play with other dogs. She is more of a live and let live type when it comes to other dogs. At the park she prefers to find people than dogs to interact with. She does best when she gets to meet other dogs in a controlled manner. Large dogs that rush at her make her nervous because she has 3 legs and is prone to being bulled over or bullied.
  • Gets along with cats: No
    She would love to catch and bite a cat, but she never has. My hope has been that a cat swats her nose and she loses interest, but that has not been the case so far.

Special Requirements

Doesn't like hard surfaces. She's missing a front leg, and it hurts her paw to walk on concrete or (especially!) gravel.
