Sixpence joined the League's Sponsor Program in 2000. Sixpence is a precious male shepherd-mix who was born with physical deformities in all four legs. Although he manages to move around relatively well, he will continue to require extensive physical therapy for his undersized limbs. Due to the rigorous and ongoing demands of his condition, he will remain in a wonderful foster care home with the League's Foster Care Manager, Barbara. As Sixpence ages, the changes in his frame will be unpredictable and can cause any number of problems.
Time will tell how Sixpence's condition will affect him and it is our mission to make him feel as comfortable as possible. The League will continue to reassess his condition frequently and decide whether or not to follow any course of action. In the meantime, he is enjoying all the things that normal dogs love to do and that includes giving and receiving love and affection.
