They are adorable.. question, what does the local dogpark say when u come with three tri pods? alternative people when you are walking down the street?
have you discoverd any medical issues? does it effect their backs more? extra restrain on the legs that alone in front back etc.. You should be sitting on a goldmine of such info, ever thought of making a tri pod doggie page with all that fact to make more people adopt them??? (sorry my head just bursted with thoughts *lol*)

Actually I do belong to a tripod forum believe it or not! The people at the dog park love my tripods. There is even an APBT with three legs that frequents the park and Cassidy LOVES him. I have not yet brought Charley there as he is new to me and I am still socializing him with other dogs to see if he has any "quirks". We have almost been the result of many a car accident on our walks. With Cassidy hopping on her front leg and the boys hopping on their back leg - we make for quite the scene on our walks. As far as medical issues - the only one I have been made aware of is the increased chance for early arthritis to set in. It is imperative that they are not overweight. Cassie is my challenge in that department. Currently she weighs too much for a tripod. Charley came to me a little on the chunky side but he is doing great now and has dropped a few. They do tend to slip and fall a lot - especially the boys with the missing back leg. But they can play and run and jump and swim just like any 4 legger can. I think what people get the biggest kick out of is seeing the boys pee - no need to lift a leg! It's just a little tilt to the side and they're done!

Monkey I am currently working on a video, a "documentary" if you will. It is the day in the life of a tripod. I am taking video of everything they do from playing with 4 legged dogs, to going up and down stairs - even defecating (sounds gross I know, but people may worry about their balancing capability). I plan on distributing these dvd's to my local animal hospitals and the animal shelter I work at, so that people either faced with the decision of amputation or are considering adopting a tripod - can view it and see that it does not diminish their quality of life whatsoever.
