It’s easy to see how our adorable little Miracle got her name as the boundless affection and happiness that radiates from her heart is in direct proportion to the deplorable neglect her body has endured, she’s a living miracle and a tiny testament to beauty, grace and courage. Emaciated and bedsore as she is, Miracle seems to know nothing but love love love for us humans and she’ll run over when called and jump into my lap to kiss up a storm the minute I sit down. A good leash walker who holds her business until we hit the the street, she greets other dogs with cheerful tail wags and even sits on her tender behind as soon as I hold up a treat, no command required! An angel who’s already more than earned her wings, sweet Miracle would light up the life of any family lucky enough to take her home. Come and get your love!
