She is about 3 year old Lab cross that is now convalescing on our couch for the rest of her life.
She is emaciated but should regain her weight as we rehabilitate her. After a rough start in life it's safe to say she hit the lottery. It has always amazed me no matter how cruel folks can be to animals how quickly they respond to a loving environment.
I have to agree with that last statement 100%!
I don't know you personally, but you folks are awesome people for adopting/rescuing abused and neglected pets.
Enjoy your new mate, and thank you for what you've done!
