When you come across a dog-fighting operation, it is not a pretty sight. Dozens of neglected and severely emaciated dogs are tied up with heavy chains and left with no food or water. Sometimes these traumatic experiences scar a dog for life, while others still crave attention and love from humans.
Rescuers from the SPCA of Texas found 14 dogs at a suspected dog-fighting operation in Able Springs, Texas, in August. When rescuer Madeline Yeaman walked up to the site, all of the dogs were jumping and wanting her attention. All of the dogs but one.
As days went by, Gwen began picking her head up higher and higher until she felt like a dog again. “No longer was Gwen lethargic and hopeless,” the SPCA wrote. “She greets everyone with a wiggly body, wagging tail and trademark pit bull smile.”
As her body healed, her spirit began to shine and she started breaking out of her shell. Now she enjoys running around outside and getting showered with love and attention, all of the things that most dogs take for granted.
