Sapphire is truly the sweetest girl. She is about 45lbs and is pure love. She smiles submissively and just wants to cuddle. She loves children and probably was raised around other dogs though we don't know for sure. She curls up in her bed and is super calm.
She was hit by a car and has temporary (we hope) nerve damage in her front leg. She gets around well on 3 legs though! Typically this starts to heal over the course of a month or two. APA will treat her condition until resolved. She was also pregnant but we believe that the babies are not viable after the accident and she will need a recheck in the clinic via ultrasound.
