WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL:
Tater Tot was purchased from a breeder and then later surrendered to Dallas DogRRR Rescue. When he was a baby he experienced a traumatic injury to his hip and spinal cord. It was determined Tater's mom or owner stepped on him as a pup and the previous owner never fixed his injury. His hip was completely out of the socket and the other leg did not seem to be functioning. We had him seen by our doctors and decided to remove the one leg due to Tater chewing his foot; it had become necrotic and unsaleable. There was no way to save the leg. The other leg was not repairable and eventually it also had to be amputated due to becoming necrotic as well.
Tater needs someone who is willing to give him the special care that he needs. He is paralyzed from the hips down. He wears diapers due to his incontinence. We assure you is comfortable and has a good quality of life. Once you meet this guy you will know. If you have any questions prior to adopting please email email@example.com
Tater gets around wonderfully there not much that slows him down. He does have a wheelchair that was purchased for him.
Update from his foster.....
Tater has settled in well. He's quite a character and becoming a Velcro pup, always wanting to be by his fosters side. He is on the search for a full time bone holder. His T-Rex arms mixed with the cone he had to wear after surgery made properly holding a bone difficult. This boy loves to chew; so you must be able to hold at least two bones at one time! Proper holding of bone rewards you with the cutest looks and sweetest licks.
