If I somehow found out who you are, you'd be lucky to escape. There's no cause for nearly breaking an 8 week old puppy's leg. None. It breaks my heart to see her flinch, when all I want to do is pet her. Thankfully we got her out of the shelter when we did, and we are never going to raise our hands to her. She is slowly learning that my husband and I love her, and we are never going to give up on her. That's what families do for each other.
