Sinbad – Male black Lab, 4-months-old 38 lbs Not yet neutered

Background:Sinbad came to the Martinez shelter on March 21st. He was found as a stray, not microchipped and with an injured leg. Our vet was unable to repair Sinbad’s fractured leg on March 29th and therefore had to amputated the left rear leg. There was too much scar tissue and calcification around the distal head part of the femur bone… He believes the fracture occurred in late Feb / early March. Poor guy. Sinbad is an absolute sweetheart! He will melt your heart!

What Sinbad's Foster Says:Sinbad recently had his final puppy shots so we are now able to get out more in public. He has met a few people and dogs and gets alone with them just fine. Not sure how he is with cats. Sinbad is house-trained and crate-trained -- he actually will go into his crate even if the door is open for him to get out. He loves to lay near me if not in his crate. Sinbad loves to play and gets around just fine with his 3 legs. He may have been abused or frightened by a man in the past as he is skittish around my male roommate (who is a dog lover as well). My roommate will have some food on him and gradually give him some food and then Sinbad will warm up and will want to be petted by him. What a sweetheart! Can’t say enough good things about Sinbad. Sinbad will be a three-legged sailor dog. He still has seven seas to sail and many adventures to embark on. We will find him a fabulous forever home.

What Sinbad's Rescue Rep Says: Sinbad makes up for his lack of one rear leg, with his delightful personality and ever-active nature. Three-legged dogs live long and full lives. Good news is that Sinbad is not a dog that will jump up on you. Sinbad will still need walks and exercise… and socialization with other dogs. His adopter must be prepared to give Sinbad the opportunity to absolutely thrive and experience life to the fullest.

Medical: Other than getting around on three legs, Sinbad is in great health. He is still getting his rounds of puppy vaccinations. Not yet neutered or chipped.

Our volunteers donate their personal time phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
