Noodle is just a small little puppy and has been diagnosed with carpal laxity syndrome, a deformity of the legs that primarily affects puppies. Puppies have fast growing bodies and go through growth spurts. When they have improper nutrients or are crated in a small area with little room to move their growing legs, they can develop this condition. With proper care and exercise, puppies can recover from this. Noodle is currently in foster care and we’re working with her to help her heal. Stay tuned as we provide updates on Noodle’s progress.
