Freckles's Story:

Freckles came to PAWS as a puppy, badly injured after being attacked by another dog. After undergoing surgery to amputate her unrepairable front leg, Freckles went into foster care with a PAWS volunteer, where she gained back her confidence and made herself part of the family. Slowly but surely, after lots of stumbling, she learned how to walk on three legs. Today she can get around just as easily as any other dog, hopping like a rabbit when she walks and runs. Despite her past trauma, she loves to play with other dogs. She now lives on several acres in her permanent home with 4 canine brothers and sisters.
