  1. Hello.I saw your videos with the 3 legged dogs,and I was wondering if you could give me some information on their health after some years from the surgery,bacause I have a puppy that is going to become a big dog,a half-blood greek shepherd(if this is what it’s called) that had to have its back left leg amputated under the knee,so she has 1/3 of her tibia(i’m thinking of an implant of a prosthetic if it can work)and many people and vets have told me that it is highly likely that she might have tarsus collapse,meniscus issues or other health problems when she is older, because of her weight.Can you give any information on that,and maybe something about implants or prosthetics if you have any idea of what is going on?If I know she is going to be fine with just 3 leggs I probably won’t have to deal with implants etc.
    Thank you in advance,
    Christina Barlogianni
