new old dog in town

My mom wanted a dog, and I thought an older dog would be better for her than a puppy, so the animal shelter found this one for us. She's seven years old and comes with some defects: she has a semi-lame rear leg and is scared of everything, but she's already becoming a member of the family. The vet says to leave the leg alone for now. It's an old fused bone injury that does not need to be treated at this time. She just had a shave from the groomer due to her fur being too matted to clean and style. It will grow back and she'll look great.

Below, she (Mandy) is already friends with my dog, Lucy. Both are "pound puppies". The "new" dog makes #3 that we have gotten from the shelter since 1994. We'd like to adopt them all, but we only get what we can really care for.
