This is Victory, a precious three-legged Chocolate Lab that we are fostering. Truth be known we're falling in love with her and despite having three dogs of our own we're considering adopting her. Before she came to us she was treated for heartworm so now she is be outside only to do her doggy duty and come indoors to rest in her cage for thirty days. We let her be happy with a baseball just to lift her spirits. I love this silly and satisfied look on her face.

Awesome capture of Victory Laura. There is a place for people like you that are willing to take these guys in and care for. Just the look on her face shows me just how grateful she is to be with you. I have a Australian Cattle dog that we adopted about 2 years ago and just recently had to put down our black lab due to cancer. She was 14. I am still heartbroken over losing her #10378043
