Millie – An Update

Millie is doing great – she doesn’t know that there is anything wrong. She is pretty much house broken and crate training (although she does still carry one initially when going into her crate) and enjoys playing with most of her brothers and sisters. She is still very much a puppy and mouthy, but she […]

Here is Jazzy

Millie’s Orthopedic Surgeon Visit

Millie’s foster family took her to see the orthopedic surgeon yesterday. He did several tests and reviewed her X-rays.

It’s also unclear exactly how curved the bones […]
