Description: 
Josie came from a shelter in NC. She was presumed hit by a car and they held her as a stray hoping someone would claim her. No one ever came for her and we had Josie pulled from the shelter and taken to a Vet. It was found that Josie had actually been shot several weeks earlier rather than hit by a car. Josie had a shattered femur (upper leg) that unfortunately could not be repaired surgically because it had been left untreated so long. Josie's left rear leg had to be amputated. Josie has recovered now and is doing just fine. She gets around as well as any of the other dogs!! Josie is a real sweetheart and is very brave. She loves to give kisses and is great with everyone. Everyone that has met her has been astounded at how resilient this girl is considering all she has been through. UPDATE 5/8/2009:
