Izzy also known as Isabelle, is 100% pure bred border collie. She was born in 2005 and I adopted her in 2006 thru the New England Border Collie Rescue. She lived on a Alpaca farm from 2006 to 2016 and main job was bringing the Alpacas up to the barn. She started with a small lump in the front right leg in 2005 (late) and we had it checked out and was told it was cancer that was growing, but it was only to that one limb. In April 2016 I decided to have her leg amputated even with her age, she acts like a little puppy. She has a basket full of toys from Bark A Box and is now living in a apartment with me. She lost her leg and farm in the same week, but because I give a lot of attention and she loves the stimulation of being by the beach and seeing other dogs, she's doing great!
I can't figure out how to post a picture....sorry

Guardian of Manni the Wonderdog. -Or is it the other way 'round?
Manni was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Dec '15 and immediately had his right front leg amputated, followed by 5 rounds of chemo. Manni's real name is Manfred and he turns 10 on Jan 28 2017. So far we are mets-free...

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
