This poor girl was found by a kind citizen and held for Animal Control. The officer that picked the dog up couldn’t help but cry when she saw the horrible condition the dog was in. She handfed the dog hamburgers to get her to eat. She appears to have had several litters of puppies and is probably around 3 yrs old (just a guesstimate, due to her injuries – it is hard to look at her teeth). She is a petite 36 lbs.
She was rescued by SPCA of Wake County! It is believed she received her injuries through dogfighting, yet she is a very affectionate and loving girl! She has been named Hope. Hope will go home with a foster family on Friday. She will need to go through extensive surgery and rehab, all of which the SPCA will provide!
