We have found this dog, boy, huntaway cross maybe. Shore road park, remuera.
I have been told by an overseas relative after she had some Hyaluronic acid injected (by a medical specialist) on her knee joint, her knee pain has reduced significantly. Before that she could not even walk, now she can do some activities such as a long walk.
Can someone please give me some advice? Is this available in Auckland or NZ?
