Who is Jerry?

Hi, I am Jerry G. Dawg, and in 2006, when I was eight years old, I was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. Doctors amputated my leg in order to give me more quality time. My pawrents, Jim and René, were emotionally devastated. They didn’t know anything about canine cancer, amputation surgery or tripod dogs, so they started blogging and making movies about my life as a way to cope.

Doctors only gave me four months to live. But I didn’t care, because time means nothing to us dogs. Living for the moment is all that matters, so I decided to show my people how to really live!

Three Legged GSD Wyatt

In June, 2007, we hit the road to travel North America in our RV. Mom and Dad drove me 30,000+ miles, inspiring people from California to Maine to Florida, by showing them how awesome three legged dogs can be. Together, we spread the word that It’s better to hop on three legs than limp on four!

My pawrents and I had an incredible ride together, until October 3, 2008, when I earned my angel wings under beautiful Montana skies — almost two years past my diagnosis. Although I no longer hop on this earth, my spirit lives on forever through this website and discussion forums for three legged pets and their pawrents.

In 2009, PBS first aired the Nature episode, Why We Love Cats and Dogs. This pawesome show about the bonds people develop with their animals featured my travels with and my pack—Jim Nelson and René Agredano who founded this site after my cancer diagnosis to help others cope with the difficult decisions they faced.

Today they continue our mission to support those facing a cancer diagnosis or amputation for their dogs and cats. They now travel with Tripawds spokespup Wyatt Ray Dawg. Now, you can help carry on the inspawrational legacy of courageous Tripawds past and present, by sharing the amazing story of your own three legged hero.
