Four month old Shelly should have nothing to worry about. But, she began life in a puppy farm and developed a serious urinary issue. Continually leaking urine in the dirty conditions of a puppy farm would have caused Shelly many problems. In some ways, she is lucky, she was given up to rescuers at a young age, she won’t have to suffer for years as many dogs do. But, the costs of treating her condition fall not to her breeder, but to charity. This is why Schnauzerfest exists.
