All of the other dachshunds from the rescue, including Kenzi's mom and sibs, found their forever homes, but the little puppy was still waiting for a family who would love her and help her overcome her physical challenges.
That is, until Tina Petras and Diane Molinari saw a photo of her online and knew she belonged in their family.
"You can see her legs fall out from under her. We don't know if she will stay this way or get better or worse." Petras told MassLive.com, "We know what it takes, we know what the cost is. I know that scares people away, but we didn't think twice about it."
