Birdie was born with a deformed paw. At 11 weeks old, her left front leg was amputated, and Birdie became a rescue puppy. Paul came to the rescue and became her Papa. It was nearly 4 years ago that Birdie became a part of the Geiger Prosthetics and Orthotics family. She is loved by many patients. Many patients just stop by to see if Birdie is in the office so they can see her and play with her! Birdie loves kisses, and loves to having her ears rubbed.
Birdie now mostly stays at home with her a new best friend named Rolo. We miss having Birdie here at the office, but love that she has a best friend to play and run around with all day!
