Diamond was rescued 04/2015 from a local shelter. She was said to be older & have cancer. After some initial testing and good, steady meals, Diamond began to put on weight. We are left to believe whoever surrendered Diamond to the shelter lied, saying she was old & sickly, to avoid getting in trouble for the horrible neglect Diamond must have been put through.

Josie was accidentally injured by her mom just after birth & her right paw had to be amputated. As a young pup, Josie did wear a prosthetic boot to help her balance and a carpal brace on her left for support. Josie is a very playful dog today and does not let her amputation keep her down.
