Hayden is a large, happy dog. She loves treats, toys and people. She had a deformed rear leg that the SCRAPS veterinarian determined should be removed. The leg was amputated two weeks ago, and SCRAPS said she is adapting well. Because of her high energy level, it would be better to place her in a home with children older than 12. Refer to the pet’s ID number when contacting SCRAPS about one of the adoptable pets. If interested in this dog call (509) 477-2532 or visit the shelter at 6815 E. Trent Ave. in Spokane Valley. Dog adoptions cost $120.
