Remember Your Beloved Pet
Puppy broken leg

Sooo...I am buying a pomeranian puppy off of a family. I was there last week and played with all of the pups and picked one. They said that they would call me to let me know when she was ready to go home with me, since she is only 6 weeks old. Well, they called me today to tell me that their kid accidentally stepped on her leg and broke it. They took her to the animal hospital, where they were told she didn't need surgery, just a splint. Will she be ok? Should she heal fully? And what should I know when I bring her home?
