Dog came first

A couple sold their car, scrapped a holiday and cancelled Christmas gifts to pay £24,000 vet bill to correct deformities to their German shepherd dog’s front legs. 

As Dixon grew up, his front legs bowed outward and were shorter than his back legs, which left him struggling to walk. CT scans showed a rare genetic deformity that left him with holes in his elbows, which needed rectifying along with his out-turned paws.
