'Tigger' the dog doesn't let his deformity bring him down
BROOKS, Ore. -- The foster family of a dog named Tigger, who was born with a serious deformity, are hoping to find him a forever home.
Before they do that, they have to raise about $8,000 to help Tigger get surgery to get specialized prosthetics -- his paws didn't form correctly when he was a puppy, and he now essentially walks on his wrists all day.
Because this gets painful, he likes to hop around on his hind legs -- hence the name Tigger.
"His bones are so deformed it would take someone special to [operate on him], but that's out of my price range... that's why we've had him for so long," Bonnie Graham with the Savin' Juice organization told KATU.
