A couple of you have asked about my dog Manny (sorry for not answering you Kara I meant to put this on a few days ago) so I thought I’d tell you about him tonight as he is my golden boy!!
We got him from the rescue centre when he was a puppy and thought he just had cute little stubby legs. It was soon apparent that as he was growing his legs were really quite a funny shape and he often started limping.
We took him to the vets for x-rays and they said his legs are congenitally deformed. As he gets older his feet are turning outwards and his little front legs are very bent, his back legs are normal which puts pressure on his back because his front end is lower.
We have no idea what breed he is, he’s a Heinz 57 for sure. He is just the nicest little dog and I spoil him rotten, he loves to have a cuddle and we’re all happy to oblige!
I don’t think he’s in pain, he loves to run around but knows when he’s had enough. The only treatment would be breaking his legs and putting pins in, it would cost £1000’s and cause him a lot of pain with no guarantee to make him better so not really an option. I don’t think he’ll be with us for very long but I’m so glad we went to the dogs trust on that particular day, I know he was meant to be with us.
When he was a puppy;
You can see how his feet turn out, and his right leg is the worst;
He’s such a character - I love him!
My favourite pic, he has such a lovely face
Thanks for letting me indulge!! I’ll stick to cards in future lol …enjoy the rest of your evening xx
