Dog with Disability to be X-Rayed by Placer SPCA

A dog born with three legs and extra appendages will have a radiograph to see what her options are.

Melody Pond arrived at the SPCA this week with a deformed leg.

This week the Placer SPCA in northern California received a stray. The dog, named Melody Pond, has pretty blue eyes and a curious disposition. She also has three legs along with an appendage taking the place of her fourth leg.

KCRA.com reports that the SPCA said the condition is not due to abuse, but to a birth defect. Veterinarians will conduct radiographs on Melody Pond today to determine surgical possibilities.

Even with the disability, Melody Pond seems to be just as happy as any other puppy:

She will be put up for adoption if the surgery goes well.

If a dog with her condition were to come into your office, what would your course of action be?
