Gee, yes, they can swim! we purchased a an extremely nice vest with a handle for Sammy, who was a front-leg amputee. Once we arrived on the beach, after carrying the darn point a mile come the beach, someone threw a ball into the water and also away Sammy went. We assumed he might swim in circles, however he swam prefer a champ!
Sammy also swam after the round every day for 4 months at the lake in Michigan. Us made him avoid periodically come rest, and he hated that. To spite us, i suspect, he started digging in the sand v one prior paw — which fear the heck out the me. That looked favor a vapor shove!
I came to believe there to be nothing a tripawd couldn't figure out a method to execute if they want to bad enough. They are amazing!
