Hope was left to die in the shelter. She had a broken pelvis and knee, and was very overweight. She lay on the shelter floor waiting for someone to come help her and take her home, but no one wants to adopt an injured, older dog so she was slated for euthanasia.
The shelter called us and we went to pick her up and began caring for her injuries. It took us a few months to get her ready for adoption but as you can see from the photo, she is healthy and happy (and maybe still a bit tubby) with her new family.
