There IS a dog under all this.

Bella was dropped off at the Hillside and her condition horrified us. She could barely walk, her legs were matted in places to her side. Her nails corkscrewed around. Immediately, a team from Hillside, some of who were here doing chores or were outside their regular working hours, sprang into action. Number one goal was…
