    thank god she came into your hands. . . it's horrific that a breeder would sell her in the state she was in but it was obviously fate that brought her to you :)

    You're looking between £100 - £150.
    The vet said it was difficult but not overly difficult as she left no "nub" she just removed the whole leg. (it was infected in the bone so it was for the best).

    Unsure how long GA was, she went in at 9am and I picked her up at 6pm, she was up and about by 3pm but they wanted to keep her a while to see how she was.

    Fab! She's doing so well. Getting a bit fat tbh! But we are giving her less food now.
