A staff member writes: Meet Darwin: This handsome boy has muscle atrophy but has shown improvement since being with us in the care center. Since being with us he has improved enough to be able to support his weight on his front legs. The muscle atrophy does prevent him from bearing weight on his hind legs, and we also suspect he may have a neurological condition affecting the use of his hind legs as well, but Darwin can express his own bladder and defecate appropriately. Please help this wonderdog today!
