Skipper was only nine months old when he was found homeless and suffering with a broken back leg. He arrived at the North Peach Branch of the BC SPCA in September 2008. Thanks to the generous help of BC SPCA Biscuit Fund supporters, Skipper received the medical care he needed, including the amputation needed for his badly injured leg. Even with only three remaining limbs, he quickly showed his true personality to the staff and anyone who was willing to play with him.
Skipped was adopted by a new family with a lot of love to give and they've written the following letter to tell us how Skipper is doing.
Skipper is doing really well and is enjoying being served by his new family. He has three humans and two horses.
He enjoys toast with peanut butter every morning followed by a run in the woods and retrieving a stick repeatedly out of the lake.
He is an amazing swimmer and runs like the wind. Skipper has barely noticed his one leg is missing. The only time he is slightly disadvantaged is on tight high speed turns on laminate flooring.
We love Skip and are very grateful to all of the supporters of the Biscuit fund.
Love, Skipper's Family
Congratulations to Skipper and his big loving family!
