Denver the three-legged dog, right, has new owners, Los Altos residents Brandon Hamilton and Jessica Chang, and a new canine companion, Peewee, thanks to participation in the Pet Parade.
Aplucky mutt who led Humane Society Silicon Valley’s parade group last week in the Los Altos Kiwanis Pet Parade drew the eye with his confident, if lopsided, trot. Humane Society veterinarians had recently amputated one of Denver the dog’s front legs after he was transferred to them from a shelter in Stockton.
“This dog showed very little displeasure with life as he hopped the full distance of the parade, enjoying every animal big and small in his path,” said Del Owen, the Los Altos resident who runs Fina Boutique on State Street.
