We met a very sweet energetic dog today who was starved for affection and attention as her owner kept her locked in a crate whether she was home or when she left for weekends and vacations. She has lived with her 7 children and has puppy level energy play with other dogs. Her back right leg is underdeveloped and we need to see if this will be something that will require surgery. Today was Lola's first day with us and her new beginning. She got some play time in at camp Scr w ... here we were able to see how much she favors her right leg and then brought her to our vet in queens where she will be getting X-rays and evaluated. We really need help to make sure we are able to give Lola the best possible outcome .. She has spent the majority of her short life in a crate -- when we asked the owner if the kids will miss her, her owner said "they probably won't notice" ...we just want to show her that the life of a dog is precious.
