Rexi started limping. They thought she sprained her leg and went to take some X-rays, but everything sounded normal in the test.
Unfortunately, Rexi’s problems were just beginning. Rexi suddenly lost the function of his two front legs. Now, she can’t extend her legs up past her head.

They ’re also looking for “ any kind of invention, notoriety who knows commodity about tykes missing their frontal legs or handicapped, perhaps some kind of croaker who knows about a surgery,” Cassity told ABC 7. Since starting the runner, they ’ve formally planted a croaker and went on their first visit for an MRI and blood work, but the surgery will be precious if they can do it.
