Looking at Lucy and hearing her story would make even the strongest person want to cry. She has lived a horrible, painful life..
Lucy, a 3 1/2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, didn’t always look like this. This is the result of the awful abuse she endured while living in Bogota, Colombia before coming to the U.S.
The beatings she took from her former owner were so bad that her nose and jaw were broken and since they were not properly set, they healed the way she now looks.. To correct it, the bones would have to be broken and reset, which would be awful.
But Lucy is beautiful, special, and unique in her own way.
Some of her teeth were pulled so she could not fight off male dogs during repeated matings. She was able to get away but then found herself on the streets, emaciated and pregnant until someone saved her.
This poor girl has had one sad, tragic, and tortured life so far.
She is now looking for a forever home where she can find the love, caring, acceptance, and safety she’s missed out on so far. She is shy with strangers, never aggressive, and needs to build up confidence with dogs and people, but she’s just the sweetest girl who loves belly rubs. She is now spayed, up-to-date on shots, and has no trouble eating.
She is currently in boarding in New York and needs our help to find her special someone to take her home to receive unconditional love and happiness. If you are interested in opening your heart and home to Lucy by fostering or adopting, please email email@example.com
