Just a minor story that I have been following for about a week. Today with a happy ending that you might appreciate. A puppy with an extra leg, born in NY became a story when "Lilly" was scheduled to be sold to a Coney Island freak show. Then a North Carolina woman intervened and bought the pup for a higher price. Then the show operator filed a lawsuit to get the dog back. Look here to see what happened...

I saw this story on another forum, and found it very heartening.

Thanks for posting this. Shame on the owner for even considering a freak show for that baby, and bless you to the wonderful woman who paid all that money to rescue the pup and pay for the surgery to help it. A heart warming story.

The lady who rescued the little puppy is an angel. I can't believe the freak show owner is trying to sue and said he will sew the leg back on if he wins!!! The level that a person can sink to never cease to amaze me.
