I received an inquiry from a potential client this weekend. “She only has 3 legs but gets around fine. She’s faster than you would expect and will do anything for a squirrel” I responded right away!! I let the potential client know right away that I had a three legged cat and was not intimidated at all by a three legged dog! Mom got right back to me and we met for a consult.
I showed mom and her brother, the dog – Rocky’s owners my rate sheet and explained what all of my rates were for my different services. They saw that I charged extra for pets with medical needs. I casually mentioned that Rocky did not qualify as a pet with medical needs and they were surprised! I told them that a dog with three legs is not a medical case to me! She’s a completely normal dog!! They got a little excited that I recognized their dog as a normal pet with no medical needs. Rocky lives on the third floor of an old brownstone and climbs two large flights of stairs on a regular basis. This dog is in no way special needs!!
I’m so excited that I get to walk a Tripawd every day! I’m sending them the links to this site as well as to the Tripawds Facebook page. I hope they join! Keep an eye out for Lindsay, Alex, and Rocky (the Komondor/Marema mix)!!
