Boots is an active tripod. How she lost most of her right front leg is a mystery. The shepherd-chow mix is about 5 years old and likes to play with other dogs; however, Boots prefers to be the only pet in the house. She strongly bonds to her person. Learn more about Boots at El Dorado County Animal Services, 530-573-7925. For spay-neuter assistance and other support, call the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at 530-542-2857.
