Oh wow, sorry you are going through this.
If they are the only tumors and the dog is otherwise happy and healthy I'd probably go with amputation.
If the dog was showing signs of serious aging and would need a bunch of chemo I'd be leaning towards palliative care.
Ultimately for me it comes down to the question of which option maintains quality of life? Chemo is tough on people but I don't know how it is with dogs, I've heard of many tripod dogs being happy, though I don't know what the recovery is like, palliative care would be if I thought the dog wouldn't go well with the other options.
