Smile Stumpy :)

Some of you may already know his story if you have seen my breeding thread, but for those who haven't, the newest addition to our hamily is my gorgeous 3 legged boy Stumpy Stumpy was the runt of the litter, and had his front right leg broken at just over a week old, the leg died and fell off. Remarkably, the stump healed well by itself and he has adjusted to life extremely well with 3 legs, even enjoying running on a wheel! (which he is doing while I type this) He is a remarkable little boy, and so far is managing extremely well, and doing things already that I never thought he'd do!

His name is very appropriate although his remaining stump is so small and neat you hardly see it!

He really is a lovely Golden. He really should have just as good a life as any other hammy. He's already one up with you keeping him. Sweet little face.
