 Russian tortoise - Free to a good home

We rescued a Russian tortoise about 5 years ago. Shortly thereafter, it looked like his front leg was "shedding" his skin. Since tortoises’ don’t shed, the vet couldn’t say what was happening. About 4 months later, the leg fell off, about half way up. The vet thinks that he got injured somehow and that they do this when injured as a defense mechanism to sustain life, it healed over and fell off. He lives indoors and we have to cut his food up fairly small since he only has claws on one side, he can’t grab and hold his food. Now that my children are getting older and more busy with extracurricular activities, we no longer have the time it takes to take care of him and I think he needs a home that could provide him with more socialization.

 Russian tortoise - Free to a good home

Hello! I may be wanting to give this tortoise a nice home :) Are there any other issues with it? (respiratory problems, parasites..etc etc.) Could you provide a picture? It will be my first Russian too. I’m not sure when/if I might be able to get it but stay in touch :)
