We adopted Penny about two months ago. She lost her leg (we're not sure, but we think she was hit by a car) after the shelter found it had healed wrong and she was in tremendous pain. We are so thankful that they amputated it and didn't put her down. She isn't hindered by it at all--she races around the puppy park! Penny is the sweetest, most cuddly, funniest puppy we've ever met. She loves everyone--dogs, cats, people, children--and she's made us so happy. We say Penny is not handicapped--she's handi-capable!
