She raised them and they all got adopted into loving homes. Then we found out that she had hip dysplasia in both hips and torn ligaments in both knees. She had surgery and recovered like a champ. She was timid, scared, and in pain when she came to us. She is now happy, healthy, and loving life. She makes me happy every single day!
