Clara, who came into Mutts in a Rut Rescue after lingering in a rural shelter for four years, needed surgery on her leg to give her a chance at adoption. She had the surgery and is doing well in her foster home. Clara has weekly water rehab to help heal her leg. She’s a wonderful, sweet dog and has been given a second chance thanks to the Petfinder Foundation. She is now up for adoption. Meet Clara here.
