Onyx was abandoned in August 2009. She arrived at the shelter dehydrated, emaciated and flea-ridden, weighing just 36 pounds. Within a few weeks Onyx was cleaned up and adopted. Her new owners began to notice Onyx’s right hind leg was limp. X-rays were completed and she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. Onyx was then referred to Dr. Less for evaluation. Shortly thereafter, she received a new hip. Onyx is now active and playful. Her owners are grateful to everyone that helped Onyx have a better life.
