Trifecta Charlie

A Three Legged Greyhound Derp

The Beginning

Charlie is a 8 Year old 78 lbs. ex-racing greyhound derp. I adopted him in May 2012 and he’s lived on the couch ever since-

On Friday 2/2/2018 Charlie slipped on the wood floor and sustained an external compound fracture in the tibia of his left rear leg. After x-rays, there was a concern that further down the leg (near the ankle) was indicative of bone cancer. We performed the aspirated biopsy the following Sunday and received inconclusive results the following day. There were certain cell types showing up in the sample that should not be there, but they could not confirm if it was cancer. With the possibility of cancer and the complexity to his break we opted to have his leg amputated on Tuesday 2/6/2018.

    What a beautiful greyhound Charlie is… first greyhound Babboo looked just like him. So sorry this happened to Charlie but you’ve come to the right place for information and support.
    My twelve year old greyhound Sessy lost her left rear leg to osteosarcoma in January last year. We followed up with six doses of chemo. Over a year now Sessy has been doing good, and is still cancer freeeeeeee!!!
