Meet Simon

Simon is a stunning Anatolian Shepherd boy who was shot before landing in the shelter. Since buckshot/bullet fragments are not easily removed by surgery, we were hoping that he would be able to live with them as some of our other dogs do, but even after a few months, he was still limping, not putting weight on the leg that was most affected with a BIG bullet fragment plus other shrapnel. Since the leg was giving him so much pain and one fragment was buried in the bone and couldn't be removed, our veterinarian advised that amputation would be the best treatment.

Simon has made a full recovery from the amputation and is getting around quite nicely on three legs. He has gotten along nicely with every dog we have paired him with -- puppies and seniors alike. Simon has nice manners in the house and walks pretty well on a leash, though he does better OFF-leash because he's still figuring out how to achieve the smoothest gait possible on three legs.

When we pulled him from the shelter, we thought he was likely a working livestock guardian dog, so when he first came to Windsong Ranch, he lived in one of our barns with a small yard. He didn't bother our barn cats, so with proper introductions and supervision in the early days, we expect he could live with house cats. Of course, once we scheduled his amputation, we moved Simon to the house, and we don't have house cats, so he would definitely need a refresher course in cat manners.

Simon is a real love SPONGE, just soaking up all the attention and affection you will give him. Apply today to adopt Simon!
