Friendly three-legged Flash

My brother adopted one of your dogs a few years ago and he is such a lovely dog I thought I would write in a succcess story. Flash is a three legged ginger coloured boy (called Flipper when living at the Dog Refuge). You would think his three legs would slow him down but Flash is faster than our four legged kelpie!

Friendly three-legged Flash

He is a very affectionate boy who likes to cuddle right up next to you on the couch. He has been somewhat spoilt since being adopted and loves being showered with attention. He is best friends with our Kelpie Millie but takes a while to warm to other dogs. When our daughter sleeps at his house he takes it upon himself to sleep outside her room to keep a watchful eye instead of sleeping in my brothers bed as per usual!

We often ponder how poor Flash lost his leg and think how lucky he is that the dog home found him and that he can now live the life of riley!

  • what a wonderful story!! Kylie, your brother is fantastic. I only wish people would go to dog shelters before they buy a "new" puppy. These dogs are beautiful. So many have suffered so much and it takes kind people like you and your brother to show them the love they deserve. I wish you and your brother all the very best and God bless you!!!
