Hi, everyone! My name is Amanda and I'm Stumpy's human.
Stumpy is a three legged Eastern Box Turtle that was found in the middle of the winding back country, in the hills of Kentucky in July 2017. He is a fearless, charismatic little guy who can always be found with his neck stretched high, watching the goings on of the rest of the animal crew. Stumpy currently resides in a 55 gallon tank with his buddy, Squeaky... a three legged toad. We are in the process of setting up a more permanent winter residence for each of them.

You may think Stumpy and Squeaky are enough to give our house the nickname, The House of Misfits. If only....
Current residents:
Jacob (Black Lab with epilepsy)
Chopper (Aussie mix with epilepsy, retired detection dog)
Vader (German Shepherd)
Eevee (Chihuahua mix with no teeth and no lower jaw structure)
Abby (Belgian Malinois, active detection dog)
Harley Quinn & Mittens the Kitten (cats....that's enough of a problem haha)
Mushu & Lady (Leopard Geckos)
Blue Eyed White's Tree Frog
2 Madagascar Hissing Roaches
1 Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula
Oh....and the people....myself, my husband Justin, our daughter Katelyn and our best friend John.

Hello, Amanda, and a very warm welcome to Tortoise Forum to you and Stumpy.:)
Having only three legs doesn't seem to bother them too much, does it?

It doesn't except that right now his stump is irritated. Aside from that, we have to remind him that he is actually a turtle and not a mountain climber :)
