Here is an update on Josie:
her leg appears to be totally healed..she runs with the biggens full power, gets run over, rolls in the dirt, gets stepped on, plays totally rough and she has not been lame in a full month.
She has her rabies shot, all puppy shots, is de-wormed, and will be spayed in 2 weeks. Then she's ready for a new home . I don't think I even have to mention the injury, because that might lower her chances of being adopted at all. We'll see.
