RANA, 3 month old female STAFFY-x - Buckskin/Tan

RANA came in as young pup with neglected needs. Her back legs were visably weak and under further assessment by a vet, it was found that her legs were unable to stay in her hip sockets correctly likely due to a physical injury.

Fortunately, over the last month, Rana's foster carer has been working on building the muscle in Rana's back legs. A follow up with the vets shows Rana has made a complete turn around and her legs are staying in her hips.
