Lucas is a male 2 to 4 year old Lurcher. Lucas was picked up as a stray after a RTA where sadly he injured one of his back legs and had to have it amputated. Even though Lucas only has three legs it affects him in no way, he still runs like the wind, copes with stairs with no issues and plays with other dogs spinning like on a penny. Lucas is in a foster home in South Lincs.
Update: From foster mum.
When Lucas first came home with us I had some concerns on how well he would cope with only three legs, he had only recently had the back leg amputated and I feared he would struggle with certain things. Boy oh boy did this lad prove me wrong, he copes so well and now I forget he is even a tripod as it affects his normal daily life so little. Lucas is still a young boy and loves going for walks, he runs like the wind and is easily able to out run my own German Shepherd cross Collie, he can turn like a ice skater on ice. He is a very loyal dog and although loves sprinting of will always return to my side and does not like to be away from my side for to long. His recall is coming along and he is a quick learner and bright. He enjoys a toy and a treat. He does pull abit on a lead but it is not a huge issue and is normally initial excitement, he wil need extra training in this area.
Lucas is a positive boy who is always happy, he is constantly wagging his tail and is like a ray of sunshine, never sad. He is extremely affectionate and would be looking for a home who is looking for a cuddle monster and a rather large lap dog. He resides with my dogs and gets on well with them, he does enjoy a game and likes to play chase, he likes to cuddle up to another dog, he does need to be fed separately from other dogs He is clean in the home and travels well, he will often travel in a crate or in a harness next to me. Lucas has not met cats and I could not say how he would be.
