Rosie (Dog)

9 years old

We were driving down the road one very, very hot July afternoon when we saw Rosie - dragging herself down the scorching pavement with no use of her back legs.  We scooped her up, took her straight to the vet and started her on steroids and physical therapy.  She also had several teeth that were so rotten they were literally crumbling in her mouth so we had those removed.  She was not microchipped and no owner was ever found so she stayed with us and we continued her therapy.  She currently gets acupuncture 4-5 times a year but is otherwise healthy.  She is 8 lbs of sheer determination.  Her legs don't work like they should but they work well enough for her to run, run, run all over the farm.  She is in constant motion!  Although, she will always have deficits and must wear diapers when she is inside, she is a happy pup with boundless energy.
