New addition

Meet the newest addition to our family.  Belle is a Border Collie/Lab mix we adopted from a rescue here in Florida.  At 8 1/2 weeks she is a whopping 6lbs of adorable puppy love.  She looks pretty big in pictures but in real life she is actually quite small.  She is a bit malnourished and has very little muscle mass.  Believe me we are trying to fatten this little baby up.  She has a pot belly like a little piggie because she has some issues with some puppy parasites that don’t want to go away.  The vet said her immune system is having a hard time fighting the bugs off since her nutrition was lacking.  Hopefully as she puts on weight and gets good food into her body the immune system will catch up and get rid of what she has.  The poor little bit is on quite a few medications at the moment but you couldn’t tell anything is wrong with her because she is the happiest pup!
